This book is extensively documented with quotes from leading historians throughout. Dr. Bergman told me he was careful to use words accessible by anyone high school age and up. This was true of what he wrote, but many of the experts cited used much bigger vocabulary I had to stop and explain to my kids.
Although many today would like us to believe they no longer hold to the social aspects of evolutionary ideology, there is no denying it had a powerful influence on some of the darkest moments of human history. More than that, we can see it continues to have an impact.
For example, in the chapter on evolutionary capitalism, Dr. Bergman points to many examples from the last 20 years of business thinkers applying survival of the fittest to their teachings, which leads people to make decisions in a polar opposite way from Jesus teachings.
As the subtitle indicates, there are chapters devoted to the justification Darwinian thinking gave to the Nazis, Communism, and people looking down on other humans in general. Everything from male chauvinism to racial genocide is covered in various, heart wrenching chapters.
Although the subject matter is somber, the way Dr. Bergman presents is not only appropriate for teens, it is essential. There are even a few photographs helping bring the reality of the people and events covered into focus. At the same time, Bergman doesnt revel in gore. Bare facts are discussed enough to understand the horror, but not in such gruesome ways as to inspire nightmares.
I highly recommend families to have a copy of this on hand for arming their youth with the truth about evolutionary thinkings effect on human behavior.
