His thesis works relatively well when applied to discrimination against Blacks in the United States, but his definition of racial prejudice as “ racially-based negative prejudgments against a group generally accepted as a race in any given region of ethnic competition,” can be interpreted as also including hostility toward such ethnic groups as the Chinese in California and the Jews in medieval Europe.
对于针对美国黑人的种族歧视,他的理论相对成立得较好,但是他将种族偏见如此定义:“在某一特定区域内的种族竞争中被普遍接受的一个种族所受到的基于种族的负面偏见。”可以看作也包含有对象加州的中国人以及中世纪的犹太人等少数民族的敌视。

The historian Frederick J. Tuner wrote in the 1890’s that the agrarian discontent that had been developing steadily in the United States since about 1870 had been precipitated by the closing of the internal frontier—that is , the depletion of available new land needed for further expansion of the American farming system.

Specialisation can be seen as a response to the problem of an increasing accumulation of scientific knowledge.
专业化可被视为针对科学知识不断膨胀这个问题所做出的反应。
By splitting up the subject matter into smaller units, one man could continue to handle the information and use it as the basis for further research.
通过将学科细化,个人能够继续处理这些不断膨胀的信息并将它们作为深入研究的基础。
But specialisation was only one of a series of related developments in science affecting the process of communication.
但是专业化仅是科学领域内一系列影响交流过程的有关现象之一。
Another was the growing professionalisation of scientific activity.
另一现象是科学活动的日益职业化。

The trend was naturally most obvious in those areas of science based especially on a mathematical or laboratory training, and can be illustrated in terms of the development of geology in the United Kingdom.
特别是在以数学和实验室训练为基础的科学领域,这种倾向自然尤为明显,这可以通过英国的地质学发展过程得到证实。

Countries that still think foreign investment is an invasion of their sovereignty might well study the history of infrastructure (the basic structural foundations of a society) in the United States.
那些认为外国投资是对本国主权的侵犯的国家最好还是研究一下美国的基础设施(社会的基本结构基础)建设历史。

When the United States built its industrials infrastructure, it didn't have the capital to do so.
And that is why America's Second Wave infrastructure — including roads, harbors, highways, ports and so on — were built with foreign investment.
当初美国建设自己的工业基础设施时,缺乏必要的资金,因此美国的第二次浪潮基础设施——包括公路、港口,高速公路、港口城市等等——都是用国外资金建造的。
The English, the Germans, the Dutch and the French were investing in Britain's former colony.
英国人、德国人、荷兰人和法国人都在前英国殖民地投资。
They financed them. Immigrant Americans built them.
他们提供资金,美洲移民建造。
Guess who owns them now? The Americans.
想想看,现在谁拥有这一切?美国人。

A history of long and effortless success can be a dreadful handicap, but, if properly handled, it may become a driving force.
一段长时间并且不费力而成功的历史可能成为一种可怕的不利因素,但若处理得当,这种不利因素也有可能转化为一种积极的推动力。
When the United States entered just such a glowing period after the end of the Second World War, it had a market eight times larger than any competitor, giving its industries unparalleled economies of scale. Its scientists were the world's best, its workers the most skilled.
二战结束后,美国恰好进入了这样的一个辉煌时期,当时,它拥有比任何竞争者大8倍的市场,这使其工业经济具有前所未有的规模经济。美国的科学家是世上最优秀的,它的工人是最富于技术的。

In 1995 the United States can look back on five years of solid growth while Japan has been struggling.
1995年,当日本还在奋力拼搏的时候,美国却可以对5年的稳固发展作一回顾了。

Self-doubt has yielded to blind pride.
到如今,对自身的怀疑已被盲目乐观所取代。
"American industry has changed its structure, has gone on a diet, has learnt to be more quick-witted," according to Richard Cavanaugh, executive dean of Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.
“美国的工业已经改变了结构,消除了滞胀,学会了明智”,这是哈佛大学肯尼迪管理学院行政院长理查德·卡佛纳的看法。
"It makes me proud to be an American just to see how our businesses are improving their productivity," says Stephen Moore of the Cato Institute, a think-tank in Washington, D.C.
华盛顿特区的智囊团——卡托研究院的史蒂芬·莫尔说,“看到我们的企业正在提高自身的生产率,作为一个美国人,我感到自豪。”
And William Sahlman of the Harvard Business School believes that people will look back on this period as "a golden age of business management in the United States."
哈佛商学院的威廉·萨尔曼相信人们将会把这一时期视为“美国企业管理的黄金时代”。

Aimlessness has hardly been typical of the postwar Japan whose productivity and social harmony are the envy of the United States and Europe.
战后日本的生产率和社会的和谐为美国和欧洲所称羡,因此漫无目标很难说是战后日本的特色。
But increasingly the Japanese are seeing a decline of the traditional work-moral values.
但是,日本人正在经历传统工作道德价值观的日益衰退。

In a recent survey, it was found that only 24.5 percent of Japanese students were fully satisfied with school life, compared with 67.2 percent of students in the United States.
在最近一次调查中发现与62.7%的美国学生相比较,只有24.5%的日本学生对学校生活完全满意。
In addition, far more Japanese workers expressed dissatisfaction with their jobs than did their counterparts in the 10 other countries surveyed.
此外,与被调查的其他10个国家的工人相比,对自身工作表示不满的日本工人多得多。

In the past decade, the Japanese divorce rate, while still well below that of the United States, has increased by more than 50 percent, and suicides have increased by nearly one-quarter.
在过去10年中,日本的离婚率,尽管仍远在美国之下,已经上升了50%,而自杀事件则上升了近1/4。

As a result, the support for ambition as a healthy impulse, a quality to be admired and fixed in the mind of the young, is probably lower than it has ever been in the United States.
因此,在美国,作为一种健康的冲动,一种应该令人称羡并扎根于青年人心灵的品质的雄心,它所得到的支持也许比以往任何时期都低。

Economists have been particularly surprised by favourable inflation figures in Britain and the United States, since conventional measures suggest that both economies, and especially America's, have little productive slack. America's capacity utilisation, for example, hit historically high levels earlier this year, and its jobless rate (5.6% in August) has fallen below most estimates of the natural rate of unemployment — the rate below which inflation has taken off on the past.
经济学家对英美两国有利的通胀率感到特别诧异,因为传统的计量方法表明两国经济,特别是美国经济几乎没有生产萧条的时候。比如,美国的生产力利用率在今年前段时间达到了历史最高水平,失业率(8月份为5.6%)已降到低于对自然失业率的大多数估测——过去,当比率低于自然失业率时,通货膨胀率早已迅速上升。

In the United States, multitudes of premiums for new devices were awarded at country fairs and at the industrial fairs in major cities.
在美国,大量奖励新发明的奖品在乡村集市和大城市的工业博览会上颁发。
Americans flocked to these fairs to admire the new machines and thus to renew their faith in the beneficence of technological advance.
美国人纷纷涌向这些集市和博览会去欣赏新机械,因而更加坚信技术进步会造福人类。
