Mit 19 Tafeln, 23 Stammbäumen, 36 Abbildungen im Text und vielen Tabellen. Unveranderter Abdruck der 1913 im Verlag Gustav Fischer in Jena erschienenen Ausgabe.

Bound in the blue cloth, this is a handsome copy. Tape marks in front and back. 323 pages which includes an index.

In 1908 Fischer conducted field research in German Southwest Africa. He studied the Basters, offspring of German or Boer men who had fathered children by the native women in that area. His study concluded with a call to prevent a "mixed race" by the prohibition of "mixed marriage" such as those he had studied. It included unethical medical practices on the Herero and Nama people. He argued that while the existing Mischling descendants of the mixed marriages might be useful for Germany, he recommended that they should not continue to reproduce. His recommendations were followed and by 1912 interracial marriage was prohibited throughout the German colonies.
