The present monograph is concerned entirely with the subject of hair, its distribution about the body in various races, the growth of dog-faced boys and bearded women, the physiology of hair growth, the growth of customs and psychologic attitudes, the effects of various disorders of the glands of internal secretion, and many similar topics. Attention is also paid to depilation, hair fetishism and magic. A bibliography supplements the monograph.
