The Passing of the Great Race is one of the most prominent racially oriented books of all times, written by the most influencial American conservationist that ever lived. Historically, topically, and geographically, Grant’s magnum opus covers a vast amount of ground, broadly tracing the racial basis of European history, emphasing the need to preserve the northern European type and generally improve the White race. Grant was, logically, a proponent of eugenics, and along with Lothrop Stoddard was probably the single most influential creator of the national mood that made possible the immigration control measures of 1924. The Passing of the Great Race remains one of the foremost classic texts of its kind.
This new edition supercedes all others in many respects. Firstly, it comes with a number of enhancements that will be found in no other edition, including: an introductory essay by Jared Taylor (American Renaissance), which puts Grant’s text into context from our present-day perspective; a full complement of editorial footnotes, which correct and update Grant’s original narration; an expanded index; a reformated bibliography, following modern conventions of style and meeting today’s more demanding data requirements. And, secondly, great care has been placed on producing an æsthetically appealing volume, graphically and typographically, as befits a volume that ultimately argues for quality rather than equality.

Madison Grant (1865–1937) was an American lawyer known primarily for his work as a eugenicist and conservationist. Grant played an active role in crafting strong immigration restriction and anti-miscegenation laws in the United States. He served as the vice president of the Immigration Restriction League from 1922 to his death. Acting as an expert on world racial data, Grant also provided statistics for the Immigration Act of 1924 to set the quotas on immigrants from certain European countries. As a conservationist, Grant was credited with the saving of many different species of animals, founding many different environmental and philanthropic organizations and developing much of the discipline of wildlife management.
