-'''''The Rising Tide of Color Against White World-Supremacy''''' (1920), by [[Lothrop Stoddard]], postulates the collapse of [[white people|white]] world [[empire]], and of [[colonialism]], because of the [[population growth]] among [[colored|colored peoples]]. The postulations constitute [[scientific racism]], with which Stoddard concludes for, and advocates, an [[eugenic]] separation of the "primary races" of the world.+The '''race of the future''' is a theoretical composite [[Race (classification of human beings)|race]] which will result from ongoing [[racial admixture]]. Fear of this outcome has been an impetus for [[anti-miscegenation laws]] and [[eugenics]] in Europe and America.

-In the [[American literature|American novel]] ''[[The Great Gatsby]]'' (1925), by [[F. Scott Fitzgerald]], the rich man Tom Buchanan says that "civilization's going to pieces", based upon his reading of ''The Rise of the Coloured Empires'', by "this man Goddard"; allusions to Lothrop Stoddard's book of [[scientific racism]], and to [[Henry H. Goddard]], a prominent American psychologist and eugenicist. Moreover, the thematically-related book, ''The Hour of Decision'' (1936), by [[Oswald Spengler]], mentions ''The Rising Tide of Color Against White World-Supremacy'' in criticizing the ''[[Master Race|Herrenvolk]]'' (Master Race) conceptions inherent to [[Nazism]], the government theory and practice of [[Nazi Germany]] (1933–45), to which he refused his [[Intellectualism|intellectual]] legitimation.+==See also==

-== Contemporary reviews == 
-Some intellectual interest in ''The Rising Tide of Color Against White World-Supremacy'' (1920) derives from contemporary analyses of the historical accuracy of its [[Geopolitics|geo-political]] predictions, rather than its racism. In 1920, two years after the [[World War I|First World War]] (1914–18), [[Lothrop Stoddard]], predicted: An impending war between [[Japan]] and the [[United States]]; noted the unjustness to [[German Empire|Germany]] of the [[Treaty of Versailles]] (1919), that would lead to a second, European (world) war; the rise and power of [[Islamism]]-as-government in the [[Middle East]]; Asian immigration to [[Australia]]; and the decline of European [[colonialism]].{{Fact|date=June 2009}}
