Berg, Raissa, Acquired Traits: Memoirs of a Geneticist From the Soviet Union,
Viking Press Hardcover, 6.25x9.5, dustjacket, 483 pp. Very good condition, black marker mark on bottom page edges. "Born in St. Petersburg in 1913, daughter of a renowned scientist, Raissa Berg was a witness to the entire era of the building of Communism. Her vivid memories of youth in the fledgling days of Soviet rule and of her distinguished scientific career provide a brilliantly ironic view of day-to-day life in 20th century Russia and an unprecedented portrait of an intellectual generation caught in the struggle between truth and ideology. Berg worked and studied at a time of startling achievement in the field of genetics. But under Stalin, and for many years after him, science was given a political agenda. Genetic research was required to support predetermined, 'ideologically correct' conclusions -- among them, the doctrine of acquired traits. According to this doctrine, traits acquired during individual development could be inherited; if you could change someone during his lifetime, his offspring would inherit the new characteristics. The Soviet government wanted evolution to tend toward revolution, and this was to be accomplished in the course of a single generation. But the truth revealed in the work of Berg and her colleagues supported opposite conclusions, and Berg was unwilling to play the research game by government rules. ... she emigrated to the United States in 1974. ... ACQUIRED TRAITS is an invaluable document in the history of science and a tribute to the integrity of the individual under an oppressive regime."

The general problem -- in Gauss's words, 'to determine the orbit of a heavenly body, WITHOUT ANY HYPOTHETICAL ASSUMPTION, from observations not embracing a great period of time,' required a solution that both exposed the fraudulent-axiomatic assumption of 'linearity in the small' championed by the enemies of GW Leibniz, and opened the way for the revolution in geometry and physics wrought by Gauss's student Bernhard Riemann, which sparked the scientific advances of the 20th century."

"This book deals with the fascinating story of the development of the human skeleton, that fundamental inner structure which places man above all other living creatures, for it is mainly due to its unique refinement that man can stand erect and that his brain is placed high above all other organs. Nevertheless, for this privilege, he pays dearly, both in suffering and in the loss of mobility in the late stages of life. As an orthopaedic surgeon for over 40 years, I have witnessed -- and even contributed to - the changing attitude of the members of my specialty who, from a carpentry approach to orthopaedics, have taken a growing interest in the study of the nature and reactions of the living tissues which constitute the skeleton. It is this interest which has increasingly opened up the laboratory facilities to us, and has not only enlarged our understanding of the phenomena involved in the process of growth and disease of the human frame, but has also made it possible for the orthopaedic surgeon to contribute to symposia and conferences on purely research subjects. ... My intention is not to produce another text book as the field is already excellently covered, but simply to describe the succession of events which , in the course of time, has raised the jelly organisms of the sea in the paleolithic dawn of the Earth to the complicated structure of the rigid inner frame of present-day man. To prevent a feeling of frustration I must warn the reader, ... that many of the points made in these pages are still under discussion, and in other cases there is by no means unanimous agreement with my conclusions ..."
