Where can this book be reviewed?!

For what it's worth I have written a blog article about the book here: Arthur de Gobineau: Essai sur l'Inégalité des Races Humaines.

There is an extensive discussion of the work by Ernst Cassirer in his last book, "The Myth of the State." I will try, time allowing, to improve the writing and sources here. I am equally wary of the rather obvious hand of the white nationalists and their apologists; not to mention inadvertent straw-men erected by the well-intentioned.

neutral online copy?[edit]

Is there an online version from a neutral source? We typically try to give our readers links to online versions of out-of-copyright texts, but in this case I can only find it published on white-nationalist sites, and am a bit wary of linking to outright propagandist sites. I don't suppose anyone has come across it in a neutral third-party historical archive? --Delirium 06:38, 27 September 2006 (UTC)

Re. Gobineau and the Bible[edit]

Just for the record: I have added that section, because it is a common claim that there was no racism before Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species in 1859. It's not that I in any way endorse Gobineau's idea. --FreezBee 17:56, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

Extensive French[edit]

It seems unnecessary to use so much of the original French in this article, as it is the English version, and anyone who knows French and wants to look at the original could easily do so on the French Wikipedia. --N-k (talk) 12:38, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
