Elements of Human and Social Geography: Some Anthropological Perspectives examines elements of human and social geography from an anthropological perspective, with emphasis on aspects of socialization. The peasant way of life is described, principally with reference to Middle Eastern communities. This book is comprised of four chapters and begins with a brief outline of some salient features of man's pre-historic and historic activities. Human evolution and early migrations are discussed, along with the different human races worldwide. The next chapter deals with the social organization of the hunting and gathering primitive groups, paying particular attention to kin groupings such as lineages and clans. The final chapter focuses on peasants and their way of life, especially in the Middle East. Three discrete and fundamental occupational entities in the Middle East are described: pastoral nomads, sedentary agriculturalists, and urban specialists. This monograph will be a valuable resource for students of anthropology, geography, psychology, and other related social sciences.
