Originally published in 1932, this book presents a concise study of the Indian caste system. The text was created 'in the hope of adding to the ordinary man's knowledge of this peculiar form of social organization and of enabling him to form a judgment of its merits and defects'. Textual notes are included throughout. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in anthropology and perspectives on the Indian caste system.
