Lower strata, older races, and aboriginal peoples: Racial anthropology and mythical history past and present (1998)


Description “In this view south Asians, like other unprogressive people, did not change--they merely accumulated, with the latest addition to the population overlaying its predecessor, much as geological strata did. This paper will attempt to expose the historic roots and explore the contemporary ramifications of this model.”
