Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This work is a sequel to the author's book, THE SHERPAS OF NEPAL (1: Fürer-Haimendorf). The present source covers subjects not discussed in the previous study, such as settlement patterns, the farming economy, trade, crafts, tourism, and social and political change. Much emphasis here is on the effects of agriculture, animal husbandry, and trade on the Sherpa economy. Chapter 3 provides some rather interesting data on the employment of Sherpas as mountaineering and tourist guides by foreign nationals. Several chapters deal with other non-Sherpa populations of Nepal and have not been processed (chapters 5-7).
