Item description for Atlas of World Cultures: A Geographical Guide to Ethnographic Literature by David H. Price...

Originally published in 1990, this is the ultimate resource for geographically locating the myriad of cultures described in ethnographic literature. The heart of Atlas of World Cultures: A Geographical Guide to Ethnographic Literature is a set of forty-one maps that physically locate for the researcher more than 3500 groups, tribes or peoples. For any student or professional reading ethnographic or cross-culture research, this feature alone is invaluable. The author does more by providing a comprehensive index and a 1237-item bibliography that enables the reader to go beyond geographic location and find some of the classic literature on each of these groups. Cross references to listings of the cultures in the Human Relations Area Files and Murdock's Ethnographic Atlas provide other keys to learning more about the culture in question and makes this a crucial reference research tool.

Reviews - What do customers think about Atlas of World Cultures: A Geographical Guide to Ethnographic Literature?

Disappointing and limited value for the money  Sep 15, 2005
The book is sketchy in its design and printed in black and white. The title "Atlas of world cultures" is misleading, because ethnic groups are only entered with a reference number in a particular area. Besides this, continents like Europe and Asia are not completed. For example map 37 (Western Europe) does have a lot more than 45 ethnic groups. For example in The Netherlands the ethnic group Frisian has own roots, an own language and many unique cultural habits and customs.
In Asia also well-known groups like the Karenni, who are total different from the Karen, are not mentioned.
Why I still give three stars is because not many reference books are available on this topic. And indeed a lot of info is shared and as such it's nice to have and use it.
I hope this was helpful.
Glad this is finally back in print  Jan 2, 2005
I'm glad to see this classic reference tool is back in print, I wore my first copy out in graduate school running HRAF tabs. Would love to see an electronic version of the atlas someday. This is a required tool for any anthropology grad student or serious reader of ethnology.
Mr. Hyams is able to concisely review the history of selective regions of the globe and relate that phenomenon to the type of civilization man is able to create on that land. The most "readable" book on "broad scope" history I have read. Like all good history books it begs questions that are gemaine to our immediate and future civilization.
