[boxed text, top] New Revised and Enlarged Cheap Edition of "The Survival of the Unfittest" By Charles Wicksteed Armstrong The latest facts and figures available have now been brought forward greatly to strengthen the author's main argument, namely that [italics]distress tends to press upon relief[end italics], and that practically the whole of our recent humanitarian legislation is for this reason defeating its own ends, and leading to racial decay and consequent ruin. Some Press Opinions of the first edition: The Eugenics Review: "A clear and vigorous piece of writing." The Spectator: "Mr. Armstrong has written a notable book for the student of sociology, and a very readable treatise for the ordinary layman." The Lancet: "The author's ideas emerge from a coherent system of social and biological theory, which bespeaks original and vigorous thought." The Illustrated London News: "Most of his argument must be convincing, I think, to unprejudiced minds." The Daily Herald: "A book to be read and considered . . .One respects the frankness with which he voices unorthodox views." The Bookman: "His book has the attraction of being highly controversial." Discovery: "Bristles with debatable points of very serious consequence." National Health: "Mr. Armstrong writes well and states his arguments cogently. His work is, therefore, all the more dangerous. . . ." [centered score] Price 1/6 London: The C. W. Daniel Co.
