These studies have been published in various journals at different times. They are reprinted together because there is some demand for them, and thcy are not easily accessible. In prepar-ing them for publication in the present form, some of them have been expandcd and ali of them have been revised.
While each study is complete in itself, the general thesis running through ali of them is the sanie that the differcnces in bodily habìt between men and women, particularly the greater strength, restlessness, and motor aptì-tude of man, and the more stationary condition of woman, have had an important influence on social forms and activities, and on the character and mind of the two sexes.
