First published in 1911, this was the world’s first—and to date, still the only—book ever published which mapped out the great racial migrations across the earth which led to the racial composition of present-day nations.
Written by one of Britain’s foremost anthropologists—who also founded Cambridge University’s Anthropology Department—The Wanderings of Peoples describes in succinct detail how the continents of Europe, Africa, Asia, and North and South America came to be inhabited with their “native” populations.
This outstanding work of research and scholarship—written in an age when anthropologists openly stated the reality of race and its effects upon history and civilization—highlights the fact that the real driver of history is racial change, of one race displacing another and becoming dominant in a given territory. The end result is the creation of a new culture which reflects the nature of the newcomers, and this fact applies to all races, at all times, as this book dramatically demonstrates.
In addition, this work also demonstrates a number of other important facts, namely (1) that there has always been “climate change” and that this has very often been the driver for mass migrations in the distant past; (2) that the present-day myth of “peaceful pre-European and pre-colonial paradises” in the Third World is just that—and that these regions were aflame with interracial and intertribal wars which often resulted in the physical extermination of entire tribes; and (3) that the first appearance of the Jews in world history led to the origin of the word “Hebrew”—which came from the Sumerian word “Khabiri,” or “robbers.”
This is the complete text of the second 1912 edition, and contains all five maps digitally reproduced in high quality from an original copy. It also contains an index with 537 entries, an indication of the vast scale of history, peoples, tribes, and races covered in the book.
