Caste in India

Nature volume 159, pages 621622 (10 May 1947) | Download Citation



THIS 'brief conspectus' is for students, and assumes in its readers some knowledge of India and anthropology. Dr. Hutton claims no novelty, and draws freely on the accounts of Blunt and O'Malley (1931–32) and on his own Census Report of 1931, two important extracts from which, on 'untouchables' and on primitive religion, are reproduced in extenso as appendixes.
