The races of man and their distribution by Alfred C Haddon( Book )
61 editions published between 1908 and 2013 in English and held by 653 libraries worldwide
The Cambridge anthropological expedition of 1898-9 to the Torres Strait and New Guinea, led by the zoologist and anthropologist Alfred Cort Haddon (1855-1940), marked an epoch in field methodology. This edition, published in 1924, examines some of the major physical differences between human beings that Haddon used to distinguish race, looking at skin colour, hair, stature, nose, face and head form, and is thorough and wide-ranging in offering examples from throughout the world. He also suggests some reasons for the geographical distribution of the races. This was a new approach, though Haddon's findings are necessarily condensed here, providing a valuable work of reference rather than a full study. Forming the basis for a larger work, this book is is an important example of early scientific anthropology, while Haddon's curatorial work in the Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology in Cambridge made this a primary centre for anthropological study and research

The Iban are an indigenous group in Sarawak, a state of Malaysia, on the island of Borneo. This file on the Iban consists of 35 documents. The dates covered by the literature are from ca. 1840-1990. Predominant themes are agriculture (primarily rice cultivation), culture history, migrations, religion, and warfare (including much information on head-hunting). The works of Freeman, one of the outstanding modern authorities on the Iban, used in conjunction with the earlier descriptive accounts of Low, Howell, and Gomes, and supplemented by the more recent ethnographies of Pringle, Sutlive, Wagner, Benedict Sandin, and Padoch, provide a good overall view of Iban culture and society
