Reseña del editor
A classic study in the origin of the European peoples, told not in terms of leaders or kings and queens, but rather in terms of geographic, cultural, political and social development.
Defining the “Aryan family” as the Brahmins of India, the Medo-Persians of Iran, the Græco-Latins, the Celts, the Slavs, and the Teutons, the author identifies the linguistic, geographic and cultural origin of these nations’ originators and how they migrated outwards into their respective homelands.
The work concludes with the introduction of Christianity into Europe and the subsequent ascendancy of the Anglo-Saxon people (what the author calls the “Engle man”) and their culture.
