Analysis of what happens when societies composed of people of different races associate with one another. Mr. Stone has marked several passages, including this one. “Without going into the question of origins, it is clear that conditions of environment and historical forces have combined in producing certain types of humanity which are essentially different in their characteristics. To treat these as if they were all alike, to subject them to the same methods of government, to force them into the same institutions, was a mistake of the nineteenth century which has not been carried over into our own.”
