All that is central to the dynamic process in human society is evident in the study of hunter-gatherers - peoples whose subsistence way of life reflects the original form of human adaptation. This is the thesis of these wide-ranging volumes in which internationally leading scholars consider hunter-gatherer peoples in Africa, Asia, Australia and North America and reflect theoretically on the hunter-gatherer condition. Volume I takes a close look that the history, evolution and social change of hunter-gatherers, while Volume II looks at their property, power, and ideology. Together they offer a thorough overview, perfect for Social Anthropology courses.
