Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document 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.
