THE RACIAL ELEMENTS OF EUROPEAN HISTORY Chapter VI Part One THE DISTRIBUTION OF THE EUROPEAN RACES IN EUROPE Britain, France, Belgium, Germany THE British Isles seem to be nowhere so fair as north-west Germany, nowhere so dark as the south of France. The fairness of the population diminishes on the whole in the direction north-east to south-west. The whole area in England south of the Liverpool-Manchester line, and west of 2° W. -- that is roughly, of a line from Manchester to Bournemouth -- is relatively dark.

The sociableness of this race is a rough and noisy one; as between man and man it is generally sincere and upright. 10 The Alpine man may be called reflective, hard-working, and narrow-minded. The two latter are the qualities which have struck most of those who have had to do with the Alpine, together with reserve, sullenness, mistrust, slowness, and patience when he is dealing with strangers. We have here a type which on the whole shows those very qualities that are generally found in the bourgeois, using this word for a mental outlook, not for a class.

In the 'sixties of last century the Augustinian abbot Johann Mendel (1822-84) (whose name in religion was Gregor) was carrying on at Brünn investigations on heredity, and was thus led to discover a statistical fundamental law of inheritance. 2 It was found that, when two races are crossed, what results is not a 'mixed race,' but a highly varied pattern of the racial marks: the height of the one race combined in one man with the shape of the head of the other race; the colour of the skin, for example, of the Nordic race combined with the colour of the Alpine eye; the hair texture of a curly-headed dark race combined with the hair colouring of a fair race; while we find, besides, medium shapes and colouring.
