Description

In this work, anthropologist Barbara C. Aswad presents an analysis of social organization and land control of a Middle Eastern tribal society that has become sedentarized, with particular focus on kinship and marriage and other strategies of mobility. Aswad did her research in villages of the Al Shiukh tribe in southern Turkey along the Syrian border in 1964 and 1965.
