Race and RealityCarleton Putnam
The book is the sequel to Carleton Putnam’s Race and Reason, which has sold over 150,000 copies since it came out in 1961. Race and Reality is an updated version and summarizes Putnam’s approach to the racial crisis of today.
The book has among other things been praised by Nobel Laureate in Physics William Shockley:”Putnam penetratingly analyses how liberal dogmatism has paralyzed the ability to doubt popular views even in academic cloisters with resultant prevention of publication of research on racial questions. My personal investigations verify some specifics and the general tenor of Putnam’s extensive reporting of such effective suppression? I urge thoughtful citizens to read Putnam’s analyses and, in keeping with constitutional principles of freedom of speech and press, to provoke public debate between the unpopular ideas he presents and those currently popular. I urge this action in the interest of replacing prejudice, prejudgment and bias with scientific method and objectivity even though I by no means accept all of his conclusions. I have also learned by both spoken and written communication that several members of the National Academy of Sciences share Putnam’s conclusion that there do exist significant genetic differences in distribution of potential intelligence between races.”Author: Carleton Putnam
