This work clearly sounds biased and literature survey seems incomplete. For example, author selectively quotes Manusmriti to argue that Gotra was not used for exogamy, conveniently (dishonestly?) forgetting that Manu did mention use of gotra for exogamy. Without any proof author makes claims such as inbreeding is not harmful etc. This is informative but all material is cleverly twisted to suit the thesis rather than presenting them as it is.
