This is the third edition of a volume which attracted wide attention when it first became available. Dr. Crookshank is not so much concerned with the imbecile mongoloid as with nonracial mongolism. He comes to no definite conclusion as to the significance of the mongol but he does say that if we could finally discover the real cause for the presence of mongolism in our midst we should know not merely what God and man are but how they both came to be. In reaching this conclusion he traces all the views of evolution of man that have held public interest since the darwinian view first startled the world.
