The Passing of the Great Race
By Madison Grant
Introduction by Jared Taylor
The Passing of the Great Race is one of the most prominent racially oriented books of all times, written by the most influencial American conservationist that ever lived. Historically, topically, and geographically, Grant’s magnum opus covers a vast amount of ground, broadly tracing the racial basis of European history, emphasing the need to preserve the northern European type and generally improve the White race. Grant was, logically, a proponent of eugenics, and along with Lothrop Stoddard was probably the single most influential creator of the national mood that made possible the immigration control measures of 1924. The Passing of the Great Race remains one of the foremost classic texts of its kind.
This new edition supercedes all others in many respects. Firstly, it comes with a number of enhancements that will be found in no other edition, including: an introductory essay by Jared Taylor (American Renaissance), which puts Grant’s text into context from our present-day perspective; a full complement of editorial footnotes, which correct and update Grant’s original narration; an expanded index; a reformated bibliography, following modern conventions of style and meeting today’s more demanding requirements. Secondly, great care has been placed on producing an æsthetically appealing volume, graphically and typographically—something that will not be found elsewhere.
Complete with cover artwork by Alex Kurtagic, this edition will be appreciated by both scholars and book collectors alike.
