Older works in Indian anthropology essentially were restricted to compilation and descriptive studies of biological and sociological parameters. The authors give an overview of existing studies of this type and add results of their own extensive studies. They however move on to the application of modern methods of anthropology with the aim towards the analysis of causes, and the understanding of the population biology. The closing sentence the summary states correctly............ It may be concluded that to understand the population variation of the heterogeneous Indian society, there is a need for a holistic approach involving environment, sociocultural integrations and biological traits. The authors made a big step toward this goal. This book is not only a rich source of information and of stimulating reading; it represents an outstanding example of very fruitful cooperation of an Indian and German team toward a common goal.
