The ethnology of the Indian Archipelago : embracing enquiries into the continental relations of the Indo-Pacific islanders

The book contains investigations by philologists into the continental relations of the Indo-Pacific islanders. It examines existing literature on the general theories of the linkage between languages of various tribes and the state of development and level of civilisation. This is followed by a study of particular races in the region, Bugis of Celebes, Kahayans of Borneo, Battas of Sumatra and Philippine islanders. Other influences such as migration, climate, interactions between tribes, physical and mental characteristics of the people, etc. are taken into account.
