This book of readings has been compiled by Bill Edwards with two consistent themes: to provide a cross-section of articles covering the main themes related to the study of human societies; and to make accessible for students enduring articles that may be otherwise hard to find, and which contain a good proportion of descriptive material as well as raising analytical issues. The chapters cover the main themes related to the study of traditional Aboriginal society: systems of etiquette, art, economic life, kinship and marriage, politics and leadership, law, religion, and social change.
