[Part III Notes and references]


1A minority of scholars accepted the theory of polygenesis, according
to which non-white people are not descendants of Adam and Eve, and did
not migrate to Africa and Asia but were placed there by God along with
the beasts. See Bowler (1989).

2 Weber also, here and there, invoked the natural environment. He
argued, for instance, the already traditional contrast,
aridity-irrigation-Oriental- despotism versus "rainfed
farming"-European- democracy-rationality: see Weber 1976: 84, 131,
157; 1951: 16, 21, 25; 1981: 56-57.
