    Go for it Loki and scan the chapters on Nordic races and sell them to the rest of us to help with the cost. :laugh:

    I could imagine that "race" is understood in that book rather in the sense of ethnic group and that that whole is rather a work of ethnology and cultural anthropology, with questions of proper physical anthropology only playing a minor role and maybe touched only rather superficially. Racial science, namely that on Northern Europe, was, generally seen, more profound a few decades later.

    I wouldn't spend so much money in expectation of a basic book on raceology, before I knew what it is about. Are there references to that work in later anthropological books?
