Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
In this study Barton surveys Ifugao economy. After briefly
describing the environment, he discusses native subsistence techniques, and then analyses
Ifugao socioeconomic organization (in three chapters entitled 'The Organization of
Agriculture,' 'Labor, Capital, and Manufacture,' and 'Commerce'). Short chapters on 'Animal
Industry' and 'Forestry' are also included in the latter part of the monograph. This paper
is brief yet comprehensive, in that all aspects of the economy are considered, though none
are analyzed in detail. This monograph is based on Barton's earlier fieldwork among the
Ifugao. For a biographical sketch, see 1: Barton, this file.
