Race, Heredity and Civilization: Human Progress and the Race Problem. Professor W. GEORGE.

Race, Heredity and Civilization: Human Progress and the Race Problem

London: Britons Publishing Society, 1961. First printing. 12mo; stapled wrappers, 47 pp. This booklet combines a lecture given by George at Dartmouth College in 1956 (Human Progress and the Race Problem) and his pamphlet, “Race, Heredity and Civilization.” The publisher’s forward addresses a British audience and the “major colour problem in Britain.” George’s consistent thesis was that biological racial differences exist, that racial separation is the best way to isolate and promote these differences, and that integration of the races will ultimately lead to a breed of man incapable of maintaining a viable civilization. Wesley Critz George was a notable UNC-Chapel Hill professor, but an indefatigable segregationist and white supremacist who was the driving force behind the Patriots of North Carolina, a group committed to resisting school desegregation. This Britons edition preceded the American edition by two years. Some light creasing and wear to wrappers. Item #05739
