Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This is another theoretical treatment of the Rungus data (see Appell 1976, document no. 4). G.N. Appell examines the relationship between social structure and social action. Appell regards social structure as an 'opportunity structure,' because 'without structure there is no opportunity.' The problem lies in identifying a culture's opportunity structures. Appell finds opportunity strucutres in a culture's property system, which consists of a scarce good or service, the constellation of jural interests, and presence of a social isolate. Appell goes on to discuss the Rungus rights to trees and what he calls a 'tree-focussed isolate.'
