By fact and speculation, by exploration and discovery, by description and interpretation, the folkways of extinct 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. Anthropologists of antiquity like Herodotus, Strabo and Tacitus, respectively, offer their observations on Egyptian mores, on troglodytes and on Teutonic tribal ways. Sigmund Freud and Theodor Reik analyze totemic rites and tribal jealousy. Native patterns of culture are examined by Ernest Crawley, Levy~Bruhl and Ruth Benedict, and from the Congo and Arabia Andre Gide and Charles M. Doughty bring to life scenes of an unfamiliar world. Pregnancy, childbirth and the rearing of children among primordial peoples are described by Margaret Mead, Geza Roheim and others, and puberty and initiatory ceremonies are explained by James R. Murie, Gregory Bateson and Verrier Elwin. Marriage customs alien to Western experience are vividly reported by Grinnell, Fortune and Radcliffe Brown. Social habits, forms of art, the daily routine and what primitives considered the amenities of living are revealed by writers like Lewis Morgan, Paul Radin, Bronislaw Malinowski, William Mariner and Tom Harrisson. Exotic ceremonies and a variety of primitive religions are described by Franz Boas, Clark Wissler, Malinowski and Waldemar Bogoras. Evidence of inversion, masochism, and other sexual deviations in tribal culture is examined and evaluated; feasts and sacrifices are explained and the conduct of war and the protocol for making peace in older societies are reported in essential detail. Appraisal of attitudes toward death and belief in immortality among primitive peoples brings the organization of this comprehensive survey of the great adventures of anthropological research to a logical and dramatic conclusion. In its entirety and in each of its sixteen parts, Primitive Heritage provides the general reader with a field trip through the world of anthropology under the guidance of distinguished scientists and writers who have devoted their lives to the study of man's role in remote cultures.
