The rising tide of color against white world-supremacy

Lothrop Stoddard, Madison Grant (Writer of introduction)
A far-seeing survey of race and history, T. Lothrop Stoddard's epic work did not refer to a belief that whites should rule over other races, but merely that, as he put it, a man who in 1914 looked at a world map "got one fundamental impression: the overwhelming preponderance of the white race in the ordering of the world's affairs". It was this dominance, Stoddard said, which was coming to an end because of the massive demographic swings which he foresaw over the coming decades--just one of the many accurate predictions made in this book which have allowed it to stand the test of time. Starting with an overview of the different races of the world and their traditional homelands, Stoddard pointed out how their technological backwardness allowed what he called the "white flood" to colonize all four corners of the earth. --
