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.
