About the Author:

Franz Boas (1858-1942) was professor of anthropology at Columbia University.

Review:

"In the compass of this short volume Franz Boas accomplishes the annihilation of the bases of almost all the prejudices and passions on which modern society rests, and arrives by the least spectacular kind of reasoning at revolutionary and yet strangely hopeful conclusions."-Nation
