"The behavior of man in primitive society, with all his varied customs, rituals and taboos, comes under the scrutiny of the world's foremost anthropologists in this volume. By fact and speculation, by exploration and discovery, by description and interpretation, the folkways of instinct and vestigial cultures are revealed to us by writers able to illuminate scientific data with accounts rich in insight and imagination. In this most representative of anthropological forums they discuss the myths and realities of vanishing civilizations and social organizations." Topics covered include observations on Egyptian mores; troglodytes; Teutonic tribal ways; totemic rites and tribal jealousy; native patterns of culture; pregnancy, childbirth and the rearing of children among primordial peoples; marriage customs alien to the Western experience; exotic ceremonies and a variety of primitive religions; sexual deviations in tribal culture; feasts and sacrifices; attitudes towards war and peace, death and immortality, and more.; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
