Society and Cosmos. Chewong of Peninsular Malaysia. SIGNE HOWELL.

Society and Cosmos. Chewong of Peninsular Malaysia.

Chicago. University of Chicago Press. 1989. Reprint. Stock ID #163055

With a new preface. Maps, frontispiece, black and white photographic plates, xx + 294pp, index, bibliography, tables, paperback. Very good copy. Signe Howell's most surprising discovery resulting from twenty months of fieldwork among the indigenous Chewong people of Malaysia is that this small community of hunter-gatherers and shifting cultivators lacks the structural characteristics usually examined by anthropologists: there are no lineages, no alliances, no social hierarchies or other political organizations, and few elaborate rituals and ceremonies.
