Pp. viii, 541; some text-figures (maps, graphs). Publisher’s original dark blue cloth, lg 8vo. Based on a Wenner Gren conference held in Austria in 1964. The conference brought together leading geneticists, physiologists and anthropologists from all parts of the world to discuss humans in their natural environments and their adaptive responses to them (from the jacket flap laid in at the front of the book). The 18 chapters in this work thoroughly cover the biological basis of human adaptability. From the library of Alan James Westcott with his signature on the front endpaper.
