Review of Principles and Methods of Physical Anthropology by R.S.C. Roy.

Ellsworth Faris

This volume is the published form of a course of lectures delivered in Patna University by the first appointee to the post of Reader in Anthropology which Patna University has led the way to establishing in India. The purpose of the lectures was to introduce the subject to beginners in the study of the science and the result is a clear, modern,

( 485) and systematic presentation of the present state of the science, the evolution of man, his early migrations, and differentiation into races. There are two carefully prepared appendices, with tables, one giving the facts of paleontology and the other a detailed classification of the races of men. The lecturer announces that the next course will deal with Cultural Anthropology.
