Joanna is plagued by a recurring nightmare in which a man with a mechanical hand uses a hypodermic needle to do something unclear to her. Joanna always wakes from this dream in the grip of a panic.

However, Rotenhausen lost popularity and government support when he suggested the techniques should be used to control entire populations.

1. After researching the term "hackney" discuss why the caricature of a brilliant, but insane scientist could be considered hackney. Use examples from the text to support your answer.

2. Many books, especially in the science fiction genre have been written on controlling the population of the world. Discuss why a government or individual would want to control the population.
