Race and Reason


By Carleton Putnam, Published in 1961



First published in 1961, this was the first major book to address race and racial differences in a calm, educated and sophisticated manner just as the “Civil Rights” revolution began sweeping America and overturning the established order.

Written by one of America’s most successful businessmen—the founder and president of Delta Airlines—Race and Reason is a question and answer format book dealing with race, racial differences, and which answers every liberal argument—and counter argument—with passion, reason, compassion and intellect.

It addresses the issues of physical, mental and psychological racial differences, backed up with meticulous research, statistics and analysis—and proves conclusively that integration can only lead to the harming of all races, and the destruction of Western European civilization in particular.

“Unquestionably a major common denominator of fallacy in the many-sided equalitarian ideology was the suppression of the truth concerning the genetic foundation of life. We saw this truth around us every day, in the color of our children’s eyes, in the structure of their bones, in the cast of their countenances, in the qualities of mind and heart that paralleled these elements, yet trance-like we clung to the belief that it did not exist.

“Genetic racial limitations should have been as clear as crystal. All history taught it. All free science confirmed it. Few but a patently self-serving minority of trained investigators contested it. Yet the leading nation of the free world embraced the fallacy, used its influence in foreign affairs in support of it, and corrupted its own people in its name.”—From the conclusion.
