Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This monograph, in Spanish, is an ethnographic study of the
Basques of the provinces of Vizcaya, Alava, Guipuzcoa, and Navarra in Spain and to a much
less extent, those of the French Basque area of France. The time span of this work ranges
from the pre-Roman period to the mid-twentieth century. The author cautions about the
acceptability of the early historical data (i.e., pre-Roman to the end of the fifteenth
century) to Basque cultural studies because of its diverse nature and critiques those
authors who have used it as the basis of their studies on Basque history. In this document
Caro Baroja focuses on the sixteenth to the mid-twentieth centuries, the period in which
the historical and cultural data is more directly related to Basque ethnography. Although
the author frequently uses cultural theory in his explanation of the ethnographic data,
this work does provide much information on agriculture, pastoralism, dwellings, the food
quest, craft specialization, concepts of ethnicity, marriage, the household, death,
religion, and the fine arts (music, dancing, drama, etc.).
