2. James Bryce, The Romanes Lecture, 1902: Relations of the Advanced and the Backward Races of Mankind, Delivered in the Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford, June 7, 1902 (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1902). (46 p.)

Essay on the future of race relations in the world now that exploration has brought persons of different races in contact with one another. The essay is organized around four possible scenarios. “When two races differing in strength, . . come into political or social contact some one of four possible results follow. Either the weaker race dies out before the stronger, or it is absorbed into the stronger, the latter remaining practically un affected, or the two become commingled into something different from what either was before, or, finally, the two continue to dwell together unmixed, each preserving a character of its own.”
