Review by:
J. C. F.

The human race, Mr. Bradley maintains in this book, consists of two main types—the long-heads, who came from Africa, and the short-heads, who came from Asia.

The short-heads arose as a quasipathological variation, and there would appear to be a tendency to revert to the more assimilative long-headed type—a tendency which is hastened by a difficulty which the short-heads have in being born from mothers of the long-headed type.
