I guess survival of the fittest doesn’t really work out when its a match between Nordic vs. Stoddard also discusses how basically every European nation east of Germany has a good percentage of Asiatic blood. Slavs seem to be the only whites left that are somewhat Nationalistic and collectively racially conscious.
Jul 24, Farfignugen rated it really liked it Recommended to Farfignugen by: This book was a depressing read. I ended up with over 40 pages of quotes from the text after I was finished and exported the quotations from my Kindle. Needless to say, I cannot include all of that material into a single book review, but a decent summary I can do.
Stoddard’s thesis, is simply put, that the humongous populations outside of the white world Asia, Africa, Central and South America are going to swamp the white race in its domains, not by force of arms, but by enormous birth rates and This book was a depressing read. Stoddard’s thesis, is simply put, that the humongous populations outside of the white world Asia, Africa, Central and South America are going to swamp the white race in its domains, not by force of arms, but by enormous birth rates and capitalist greed for cheap labor.
Today, Stoddard would have a heart attack at the extent of nonwhite immigration into America, almost entirely for providing cheap labor to rich business interests, and building the constituency of the Democratic Party. Stoddard correctly pinpoints the origin of rsing ‘s Islamic revival into backward violent fundamentalism with the writings of Abd-el Wahab https: The life appeared to have gone out of it, leaving naught but the dry husks of empty formalism and soulless ritual.
Yet at this darkest hour a voice came crying from out the vast Arabian desert, the cradle of Islam, calling the Faithful to better things. This puritan reformer was the famous Abd-el Wahab, and his followers, known as Wahabees, soon spread over the length and breadth of the Mohammedan world, purging Risinng of its sloth and rekindling the fervor of olden days.
Thus began the great Mohammedan Revival. Every Muslim is, first a foremost, a preacher for his faith, working diligently to convert the unbelievers by whatever means available. Stoddard actually had little to say about blacks, other than that they are highly likely to be used as cannon fodder by Muslims in a protracted conflict with the West.
There is some truth to this, stoedard multiple times in America we have been confronted with African-Americans that have been radically Islamified, and been converted to the terrorist cause. He did however, point at the black fecundity will likely become a big problem down the road. Nowadays though, current population predictions suggest that Africa is headed for a multi-billion person population explosion, that will likely lead to wars and chaos if the resulting excess of young African males cannot be employed or sent off to die somewhere.
What surprised me was the enormous contempt that Asiatics Chinese and Japanese had for white people, and vice versa.
White hatred of yellow men, according to what Stoddard has written here, is almost entirely driven by rlsing white resentment at stoddarc with coolie labor.
Oriental contempt though, runs much deeper. The proud, xenophobic Chinese saw their lands carved up by foreign devils in the 19th century. The Japanese, isolated into their rigid samurai ways, were thrown suddenly from the 17th century into the 19th century, astonished at how far behind they were. Peter Hopkirk’s “Foreign Devils on the Silk Road” discusses the plundering of priceless treasures from Western China, Tibet, and elsewhere in Central Asia, all at the hands of stoddrd white devils.
Stoddard quotes many angry editorials from the Japanese popular press of the early ‘s, expressing rank hatred for white people and describing Americans as loathsome barbarians.

The world was a much different place before WWII, as this book has revealed to me. Stoddard has much to say about the enormous cost of World War 1, where virtually every person killed was white, and probably a male and a soldier.
He detests the Treaty of Versailles, mocking its attempts at forging peace. I cannot disagree with Stoddard that WW1 was a needless, bloody, awful catastrophe. Instead of banding together to forge a pan-white international order aimed at protecting and advancing white geopolitical interests, the Great Powers of Europe instead wasted billions of dollars on an insane arms race, and then led the fruit of their civilization, young 18 to 20 year old white men, off to meat grinder to be turned into fleshy soup by artillery, mortars, and machine guns.
I often wonder at how different the white world would be today if World War I had never happened. This book gave a sad glimpse into the bright future that could have been, if only all of those guns had been pointed outward instead of inward. Instead of foreign Muslim hordes invading Europe, raping women in Cologne, and executing terror attacks in France, white men would own much of the remaining world.
Instead of blacks inhabiting the resource-rich regions of Africa, Africa could have become an economic powerhouse if populated by white people. Similarly for Central America and South America. Instead of endless hectoring from non-whites about our past sins, our past “sins” would not even be up for discussion, since the people that would do the hectoring would not exist in white lands.
But one cannot change the past, no matter easily it would fix things in the present.
The Rising Tide of Color Against White World-Supremacy
Dec 27, Ananda Esteva rated it it was ok. It’s important to read this racist book Sep 15, Paul Magnussen rated it really liked it. This book was not quite what I expected. Consequently, the tone of the book quite surprised me. Racism To what extent was Stoddard a racist? To answer this question we need that seldom-found thing, a definition of racism that withstands more than momentary scrutiny.
Thomas Sowell provides a useful one: In various usages, the term applies to the ideas of 1 those who have an animosity to those of another race, 2 those who believe that people of another race are genetically inferior, 3 those who believe in discriminating against people of another race, out of sheer self-interest, and 4 those who believe that people of another race or ethnic group are less capable, or have other undesirable traits, as of a given time, even if for non-genetic reasons.
Those who believe all these things at the same time provide the clearest examples of racism. But all four notions need not go together and often do not. Winnowed by ages of grim elimination in a land populated to the uttermost limits of subsistence, the Chinese race is selected as no other for survival under the fieriest conditions of economic stress. Accordingly, when removed to the easier environment of other lands, the Chinaman brings with him a working capacity which simply appalls his competitors.
By contrast, however, Stoddard himself seems quite rational. He puts down tribal war, he wages endless combat against epidemic disease, and he so improves communications that augmented and better food supplies minimize the blight of famine.
In response to these off activities the enormous death-rate which in the past has kept the colored races from excessive multiplication is falling to proportions comparable with the death-rate of white countries. The consequence is a portentous increase of population in nearly every portion of the colored world now under white political sway.
Now what must be the inevitable result of all this? It can mean only one thing: Remember that those homelands are already populated up to the available limit of subsistence. Of course present limits can in many cases be pushed back by better living conditions, improved agriculture, and the rise of modern machine industry such as is already underway in Japan.
Nevertheless, in view of the tremendous population increases which must occur, these can only be palliatives.
The Rising Tide of Color Against White World-Supremacy by Lothrop Stoddard
Where, then, should the congested colored world tend to pour its accumulating human surplus, inexorably condemned to emigrate or starve?
Again, if he bears any animosity to the nonwhite races by which I mean wishing them illI must have missed where he says so. Whether Stoddard was unaware of things like this he had a Ph. But he is disarmingly frank about other matters that have since been swept under the carpet, some not without topical rsing By a number of secret treaties negotiated during the war the Ottoman Empire had been virtually partitioned between the victorious Allies, and these secret treaties formed the basis of the Versailles settlement.
During the war lotnrop the Allied statesmen had officially proclaimed times without number that the war was being fought to establish a new world-order based on such principles as the rights of small nations and the liberty of all peoples. These pronouncements had been treasured and memorized throughout the East. When, therefore, the East saw a peace settlement based, not upon these high professions, but upon the imperialistic secret treaties, it was fired with a moral indignation and a sense of outraged justice never known before.
An International Historyp. I knew this book would be racist, but I didn’t know it would also be so boring. I can handle the racism it’s useful to know the “arguments” advocating white-supremacy in order to debunk them but I’ve got more interesting and relevant things to read.
Feb 24, Najib rated it really liked it. This book inspire me that Indonesia has opportunity to be a big country if dolor has audacity against US hegemony. Jan 07, Lisa rated it it risinng ok.
