More About This Textbook


The Mongol in Our Midst

F G Crookshank

Originally published in 1925.

"A brilliant piece of speculative induction" Saturday Review

Combining anthropology, psychology, geography, science and medicine, this volume was a ground-breaking study in the area of race, ethnicity and eugenics, when first published and has to be read in the appropriate historical, social and scientific context of the early twentieth century.

120 pp, 24 b&w plates

Prometheus or Biology and the Advancement of Man

H S Jennings

Originally published in 1925

"This volume is one of the most remarkable that has yet appeared in this series." Times Literary Supplement

"An exceedingly brilliant book." New Leader

This volume provides a lucid summary of the striking advances of the early 20th century in biological knowledge, genetics, and the theory of evolution.


Metanthropos or the Body of the Future

Ronald Campbell Macfie

Originally published in 1928

"An exceptionally stimulating book…" Saturday Review

"Should certainly be read by a large public." The Lancet

Drawing on the history of evolution and geology, this volume examines the role of society on physical, emotional and psychological changes in the population of Western Europe during the early twentieth century, whilst attempting to predict genetic developments of the future.


Pygmalion or the Doctor of the Future

R M Wilson

Originally published in 1925

"No doctor worth his salt would venture to say that Dr.Wilson was wrong." Daily Herald

"Dr Wilson has added a brilliant essay to this series." Times Literary Supplement

The author foresees an evolution in the personality of the doctor, who will become less of a scientist, more of a humanist, and use every spiritual agency, as well as every practical measure, to restore the human body and soul to health.


The Conquest of Cancer

H W S Wright

Originally published in 1925

"Eminently suitable for general reading. The problem is fairly and lucidly presented." F G Crookshank

Whilst affirming that the causes and treatment of cancer will never be solved by the efforts of the medical profession alone, this volume provides an accessible source of information on cancer and proposes routine examination for those people aged 40 and over as the best means of defence against cancer.
