Abstract: This work was produced by one of the outstanding authorities on the ethnography of Siberia and Manchuria. Extensive field work gives a first-hand ethnographic picture of the Manchus in the first years of this century--just shortly after the Boxer Rebellion that disrupted the culture of the Manchus. Linguistic material is utilized to separate the basic Manchu social structure from the later Chinese-influenced social organization. Marriage customs, the working of a household, and economic conditions in general conclude this well-organized book.
