Pressestimmen'... [the book is] solidly researched and fresh and original in substance and analysis, both returning to old questions and raising new ones. - Current Anthropology'This edited volume, which compiles a rich selection of papers...represents a significant addition to the now well established field of hunter-gatherer studies.'Oceania'Besides presenting substantial case study articles, this CHAGS issue finally addresses unavoidable problems we are now facing to ensure the continuity of research and its related scholar intellectual tradition concerning hunter-gatherer societies. Stronger connections to mainstream anthroplogy research objects, as well as new, updated, more realistic research strategies about 'exotic' small scale societies are scrutinized with care for the first time. We may therefore expect this book to become an indispensible piece of information to size the balance and perspectives in the field study of hunter-gatherer societies.'Etudes
