Race and Nationality as Factors in American Life, by Henry Pratt Fairchild
This book is obviously meant to be taken seriously. It appears as a volume in the “Humanizing Science Series,” edited by a well-known scientist, and it has a distinguished author—fellow of the American Geographical Society and of the Association for the Advancement of Science, president of the American Eugenics Society and of the American Sociological Society, and for twenty-six years Professor of Sociology at New York University. Yet, I must confess, this work seems to me significant only insofar as it demonstrates that a living, sentient human being can keep new thoughts out of his head for thirty-five years.
