This volume, one in the series of surveys of world cultures prepared under the auspices of the Human Relations Area Files, undertakes "to define the dominant sociological, political and economic aspects of a functioning society, to present that society's strengths and weaknesses, and to identify the patterns of behavior characteristic of its members." Contains a good deal of information, but for reference rather than steady reading.
