This epic 1921 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.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.However, he continued, the transfer of European technology, learning and know-how to the nonwhite races of the earth had now empowered them, and as a result, the era of white domination was surely coming to an end.He warned that any policy which promoted open borders, and unrestricted immigration, would lead to the final and irreparable destruction of any European nation.He also foretold that the massive population boom of the Third World would sooner or later come pressing against all white nations' borders--driven forward by the Third World's inability to maintain order and progress, and the offer of a better life under white rule which they claimed to dislike so much.He was also one of the few to recognize the growing threat of militant Islam, and warned in this book that it would become a major world force.Stoddard argued that the only way to avoid a worldwide racial catastrophe was to educate people on the issue of race and the need for racial improvement through eugenics.Finally, he concluded that the only way to achieve racial peace was to abandon the concept of white supremacy completely.Front cover: A reproduction of the original 1921 edition dust jacket cover.

Lothrop Stoddard (1883 - 1950) was an American political theorist, historian, eugenicist and anti-immigration advocate. Stoddard was educated at Boston University and Harvard. He wrote several books on scientific racism. His most famous book was The Rising Tide of Color Against White World-Supremacy in 1920. Stoddard believed race and heredity were the guiding factors of history and civilization, and that the elimination or absorption of the "white" race by "colored" races would result in the destruction of Western civilization. In 1922 Stoddard saw Islam as undergoing rapid transformations. The recent war sped up this transformation that had been taking place in the Near and Far East for over 100 years.

Anhand der Beispiele historische Eugenikbewegung und moderne Humangenomik wird in der vorliegenden Arbeit aufgezeigt, dass die Entstehung sowie Aufrechterhaltung von Netzwerken ein entscheidender Faktor ist fur den Erfolg wissenschaftlicher Paradigmen und gegebenenfalls damit verbundener Ideologien, dass bei der Bildung bzw. Weiterentwicklung dieser Netzwerke bestimmten Akteuren besondere Bedeutung zukommt (= Schlusselakteure oder hubs) und dass bei Verlust bestimmter hubs ein teilweiser oder vollstandiger Zusammenbruch des jeweiligen Netzwerkes erfolgen kann. Die Richtung, in die sich wissenschaftliche Paradigmen entwickeln, ist damit stark abhangig von den Krafte- bzw. Machtverhaltnissen innerhalb der sie umschliessenden Netzwerke bzw. vom Verhalten und der Kontrolle bestimmter Akteure. Im Sinne der Akteur-Netzwerk-Theorie (ANT) wie sie von Bruno Latour u.a. entwickelt wurde, konnen Entstehung und Entwicklung dieser Netzwerke abhangig sein von menschlichen ebenso wie von nicht-menschlichen Akteuren (etwa Theorien, Methoden, Technologien etc.). Die Unterschiede sowie Gemeinsamkeiten der hier untersuchten Netzwerke und deren (potentielle) Konsequenzen fur bioethische und biopolitische Fragestellungen werden in der Arbeit diskutiert.

Asiens Antwort auf den westlichen Imperialismus: »Provokant, beschämend und überzeugend« The Times Nachdem die letzten Erben des Mogul-Reiches getötet und der Sommerpalast in Peking zerstört war, schien die asiatische Welt vom Westen besiegt. Erstmals erzählt der Essayist und Schriftsteller Pankaj Mishra, wie in dieser Situation Intellektuelle in Indien, China und Afghanistan eine Fülle an Ideen entwickelten, die zur Grundlage für ein neues Asien wurden. Sie waren es, die Mao und Gandhi inspirierten und neue Strömungen des Islam anregten. Von hier aus nahmen die verschiedenen Länder ihren jeweiligen Weg in die Moderne. Unterhaltsam und eindringlich schildert Pankaj Mishra die Entstehung des antikolonialen Denkens und seine Folgen. Ein Buch, das einen völlig neuen Blick auf die Geschichte der Welt bietet und den Schlüssel liefert, um das heutige Asien zu verstehen. »Brillant. Mishra spiegelt den tradierten westlichen Blick auf Asien zurück. Moderne Geschichte, wie sie die Mehrheit der Weltbevölkerung erfahren hat - von der Türkei bis China. Großartig.« Orhan Pamuk »Lebendig ... fesselnd ... ›Aus den Ruinen des Empires‹ hat die Kraft, nicht nur zu belehren, sondern zu schockieren.« Mark Mazower, Financial Times
Die klassische feministische Geschichtsschreibung hat zugunsten bekannter Gruppen, Personen, Texte und Ereignisse den Blick für die Differenziertheit der Akteur_innen verloren. Es gab jedoch nie den einen Feminismus; vielmehr konnten sich feministische Bewegungen und Debatten gerade erst durch ihre inhärenten Konflikte immer wieder neu artikulieren und dadurch wirkmächtig werden. Trotz der Vielzahl an Publikationen gelingt es nur wenigen Überblickswerken, sich von einer überkommenen Mainstream-Erzählung zu lösen. Dieser Band reaktualisiert daher die Debatten um die Geschichte und die Bedeutung des Feminismus jenseits von Klischees, historischen Reduktionismen oder unkritischer Affirmation.

The End of White World Supremacy explores a complex issue—integration of Blacks into White America—from multiple perspectives: within the United States, globally, and in the context of movements for social justice. Rod Bush locates himself within a tradition of African American activism that goes back at least to W.E.B. Du Bois. In so doing, he communicates between two literatures—world systems analysis and radical Black social movement history—and sustains the dialogue throughout the book. Bush explains how racial troubles in the U.S. are symptomatic of the troubled relationship between the white and dark worlds globally. Beginning with an account of white European dominance leading to capitalist dominance by White America, The Endof White World Supremacy ultimately wonders whether, as Myrdal argued in the 1940s, the American creed can provide a pathway to break this historical conundrum and give birth to international social justice.

Over a period of several centuries, the academic study of risk has evolved as a distinct body of thought, which continues to influence conceptual developments in fields such as economics, management, politics and sociology. However, few scholarly works have given a chronological account of cultural and intellectual trends relating to the understanding and analysis of risks. Risk: A Study of its Origins, History and Politics aims to fill this gap by providing a detailed study of key turning points in the evolution of society's understanding of risk. Using a wide range of primary and secondary materials, Matthias Beck and Beth Kewell map the political origins and moral reach of some of the most influential ideas associated with risk and uncertainty at specific periods of time. The historical focus of the book makes it an excellent introduction for readers who wish to go beyond specific risk management techniques and their theoretical underpinnings, to gain an understanding of the history and politics of risk. Contents:IntroductionHomo Ludens, Aleatorics and the Birth of ProbabilityNineteenth and Early Twentieth Century Fictions of Risk‘Pseudo–Sciences’ of RiskDecision Analysis and the Social Control of TechnologyInternational Crises and Precarious Global SystemsMacrosociological Dualities of Risk: Structural Inequality and Risk Society Readership: Advanced undergraduates and graduate students in politics, economics, management, sociology and cultural studies history. Key Features:The presentation of events / history is unified and easy-to-followMay be used as advanced textbook by advanced undergraduates and graduate students interested in cross-disciplinary social sciencesThe book's historical focus might be of interest to readers who are seeking to understand crucial developments within the risk literature from a ‘History of Economic Thought’ perspectiveKeywords:Risk;Philosophy;Epistemology;Political EconomyReviews: “Practitioners in the field looking to broaden their reading may find value in this study of the changing concepts and theories of risk.” Times Higher Education “This opportune book provides a comprehensive interpretation of ideas and concepts of risk. While global risks transcend national boundaries and fail to fit neatly within disciplinary confines, most books remain rooted in these frames; giving this work a special place. Risk: A Study of its Origins, History and Politics provides illuminating and inspirational reading which will expand readers' horizon and further their understanding of the theoretical and practical complexities of the pervasive risk phenomenon.” Professor Darinka Asenova Glasgow Caledonian University, UK “Although risk narratives are commonplace, deep understanding of risk is rare. This book provides the foundations for a deep understanding of risk.” Prof. Harold J. Bursztajn Harvard University “The book is structured clearly and logically. Political historians will find much of interest. This book has the potential to make a prominent contribution in its field, for the reason that others can work to fill the gaps the authors leave.” LSE Review of Books
This book considers how interdisciplinary conversation, critique, and collaboration enrich and transform humanities and social science education for those teaching and studying traditional Americanist fields.
