From Journal of Genetics, Vol. 1. No. 3, September 8, 1911. "The racial position of the Jew has engaged the attention of all modern ethnologists. The problem is extremely difficult because, on the one hand, we have the oft asserted and by no means easily disproved statement of the Jews themselves that they are pure Semites, whilst observers such as Ripley, von Luschan and others, point out that the Jew of to-day has no uniform eranial characters, that on the whole he is decidedly brachycephalic, whilst the typical Semite such as the Bedawyn is essentially dolichocephalic." (Author). Ethnological examination of heredity relating to the racial position of the Jew, applying Mendelian methodologies. Illustrated with various tables and photographically reproduced b/w images of relating art and Jewish gentiles. Description of plates and short bibliography at rear. Wraps with wear along edges, creasing and small chips at spine. Cover sunned along edges. Block with light bumps and creasing at corners. Wraps in overall good-, interior in good condition.
