Social Science to the Nth Degree
I have read the book years before, and although I continue to buy copies for many friends and associates, my dog-eared edition of Race and Culture is my bible on the history of man, his development, societal interactions, economic tendendies of individuals within societies... in short, a much more robust reference to the historical development of people than the title implies. I was fascinated with the actual tempo of the book, explaining the consequences of slavery, wars, territorial conflicts, and even empire building with the strict doctrine of scientific scrutiny. Indeed, Dr. Sewell had been completely thorough in his research to provide a most comprehensive, non-judgmental view on people. This is contrasted with a view based on agenda and judgmental bias, which some of the professional critics have transparently displayed in their own reviews of Race and Culture. With over 750 footnotes, Dr. Sewell admirably captures virtually every nuance of human interaction and evolution. Without a doubt, 'Race and Culture: A World View' is indeed as seminal a reference to the evolution of Man as any other publication to date.
