Lothrop Stoddard's analyses of the world's "primary races" White, Yellow, Black, Brown, and Amerindian, and their interactions.

The Rising Tide of Color: The Threat Against White World-Supremacy (1920), by Lothrop Stoddard, later republished in other titles, like The Rising Tide of Color Against White World-Supremacy, predicts the collapse of white world empire and colonialism because of the population growth among people not of the white race. He supports a eugenic separation of the "primary races" of the world.

In popular culture[edit]

The book is referenced in F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel The Great Gatsby, in which antagonist Tom Buchanan attempts to comment on Stoddard's predictions.[1][2]
