Hunting and gathering peoples, including Kalahari Bushmen, Australian aborigines, Eskimos, and Pygmies, are the subject of endless appeal. This illustrated reference volume is the first devoted exclusively to hunting and gathering peoples that is both accessible to the nonspecialist and written by leading scholars. It is a state-of-the-art summary of knowledge on the subject, covering an extraordinary range of materials: case studies of over fifty of the world's hunter-gatherers, the archaeological background, religion and world view, music and art, questions of gender, health and nutrition, and contemporary rights.

"This is the most voluminous source available on modern hunter-gatherer societies with many excellent and readily accessible contributions." --Thomas Widlok, Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute
"...the encyclopedia sheds a respectful and objective light on the Earth's indigenous peoples, who look to the future as well as to the past." Margaret Smith
"...a gold mine of information...there is something in this volume for everyone. Scholars of religion will certainly find a wealth of information on mythology, cosmology, ritual practice, and sacred art. This is a book that should be on the reference shelf of every academic library catering to the needs of social scientists and humanists." Religious Studies Review

The bibliographies at the end of each chapter, along with filmographies of the various native groups, are convenient springboards for further research." -- American Reference Books Annual
"This work is a commendable ethnographic overview of global hunters and gatherers."
