Ethnology: Fundamental Ethnical Problems; The Primary Ethnical Groups
The Cambridge Geographical Series originated in the late nineteenth century as a means of providing introductory guides to a broad variety of topics. In this volume, which was first published in 1896, the focus is on theories of ethnology and race as they existed at the time of publication. Whilst many of the concepts put forward will seem outdated to the modern reader, this remains a fascinating document of its period. It will be of particular value to anyone with an interest in the colonial mindset, the history of racial categorisation, or early developments in anthropology and ethnology.
