Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
Hudson's 'Kazak Social Structure' is a well-documented,
ethnological survey (based on primary and secondary source material) of Kazak social
institutions. Hudson outlines the nature of the Kazak [n]uru[/n], the basic unit of all
social groups, based on both close blood relationship and also on distant common ancestry,
and, with it as frame of reference, discusses social groupings in relation to economic
life, family, marriage, class distinctions, political alignments, and inter-group
Document Number: HRAF's in-house numbering system derived from the processing order of documents
Document ID: HRAF's unique document identifier. The first part is the OWC identifier and the second part is the document number in three digits.
Document Type: May include journal articles, essays, collections of essays, monographs or chapters/parts of monographs.
Language: Language that the document is written in
Includes bibliographical references (p. 106-109)
Except for data specifically describing the [n]uru[/n], no material will be found in
category 610 of the Kazak file, but only in functional categories. This, despite the fact
that all data have the existence of the [n]uru[/n] as a frame of reference. The category
610 has been used for data explaining the [n]uru[/n], since no provision for it exists in
any other of the three-digit kin group categories. Bibliographical citations will be found
in category 113. Data relevant to the AH02 Historical Mongolia have not been indexed for
the RQ02 Kazakh file.
Field Date: The date the researcher conducted the fieldwork or archival research that produced the document
Evaluation: In this alphanumeric code, the first part designates the type of person writing the document, e.g. Ethnographer, Missionary, Archaeologist, Folklorist, Linguist, Indigene, and so on. The second part is a ranking done by HRAF anthropologists based on the strength of the source material on a scale of 1 to 5, as follows: 1 - poor; 2 - fair; 3 - good, useful data, but not uniformly excellent; 4 - excellent secondary data; 5 - excellent primary data
