1 Shiloh, Ailon, ed. Foreword by Carleton S. Coon. (Hamed Ammar, Gabriel Baer, Fredrik Barth, Morroe Berger, H.R.P. Dickson, Anne H. Fuller, John Gulick, Anne K.S. Lambton, Daniel Lerner, Bernard Lewis, George A. Lipsky, Mahmut Makal, et al.) PEOPLES AND CULTURES OF THE MIDDLE EAST.
New York Random House 1969 First Edition Hard Cover Good+ Fair 
453 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). Map. "(E)mploys a comprehensive approach to the behavioral processes of the peoples of this important area of the world. At a time when much of the literature on the Middle East is either historical in nature or limited to specific target studies, Ailon Shiloh has compiled a volume of articles that integrate political, historical, economic, demographic, and health data into the study of culture and behavior. (His) introduction encapsulates a history of the area from the birth of civilization to the Six-Day-War of 1967. The articles that follow are written by a variety of perceptive scholars, many of whom are native to the Middle East or have lived and worked there for a number of years. The book is divided into five sections - The Distribution of Peoples, Cultures and Subcultures, Population Dynamics, Culture Change and Conservatism, and The Schoolteacher as Anthropologist - covering either the cultural history of the area or the effects of pressures toward fundamental culture change." Wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, two tiny dints and light soiling on bottom of text block, minor soiling on fore-edge of text block, previous owner's name and erased pencil name on free front end paper, soft creases across contents page. Dust jacket has been price-clipped, has moderate edge wear/wrinkling, chips and tears - some with creases, area of discoloration on spine, light rubbing and some tiny scuff marks.
