Note
"Anthropology ... is often held to be a subject that may satisfy our curiosity regarding the early history of mankind, but of no immediate bearing upon the problems that confront us. This view has always seemed to me erroneous ... In the following pages I have collected such of my writings as, I hope, will prove the validity of my point of view."--Pref
