Ed. by Raymond Firth and B.S. Yamey.



399 pages




Social anthropologists, some with and some without formal training in economics, explore the interaction between social and economic factors in a variety of peasant societies. In order to focus the anthology and facilitate comparison, the discussions are limited to the formation and management of capital. The 1964 edition was published by Aldine Publishing in Chicago, with the subtitle Studies from Asia, Oceania, the Caribbean and Middle America. Yes, Africa was overlooked, as so often back then.
