Summary
"... a study of the origin and history of the races of mankind, based on an evolutionary background ... The paleontological background leads clearly to the conclusion that the modern so-called races of man are not simultaneous divergents from a single stock, but that there has been much independent evolution (partly parallel and partly divergent) on the different continents, from diverse ancestral stocks ... The Hominidae therefore take their place with other organisms as a succession of species and genera in time and space, with several species surviving into modern times" [from Preface]; discusses mainland Aborigines and Tasmanian Aborigines as separate species
