Race And Culture: A World View
Access options available:. Journal of Interdisciplinary History The approaches taken in the first two Race and Culture [New York, ] and Migrations and Cultures [New York, ] appear to be similar to those of Conquests and Cultures, which contains a concluding chapter for the whole series. Sowell seems to regard three of his many points as fundamental: that culture is a dynamic, not a static, phenomenon; that cultural change is a primary cause of progress; and that throughout history, conquests have often led to cultural changes that contributed to progress, despite their negative immediate effects on the conquered. Apart from reservations about Sowell's notion of "progress," I find it difficult to disagree with any of these statements as general observations. However, I do not necessarily agree with how the author claims to derive them from the historical material that he cites, how he performs his cultural analysis, and how he attempts to apply his analysis to contemporary ideological issues.

During the 15 years that I spent researching and writing my recently completed trilogy on racial and cultural issues, 2 I was struck again and again with how common huge disparities in income and wealth have been for centuries, in countries around the world-- and yet how each country regards its own particular disparities as unusual, if not unique. Some of these disparities have been among racial or ethnic groups, some among nations, and some among regions, continents, or whole civilizations. In the nineteenth century, real per capita income in the Balkans was about one-third that in Britain.
Неужели это так заметно. - Как ее зовут? - Женщина лукаво подмигнула. - Меган, - сказал он печально. - Я полагаю, что у вашей подруги есть и фамилия. Беккер шумно вздохнул.
