Worldmark Encyclopedia of Cultures and Daily Life

"Each volume, Africa, Americas, Asia and Oceania, and Europe, begins with an overview of the cultural history of the geographical area followed by an alphabetical listing of the peoples within its borders. ... A few facts, population figures, a simple map, and a list of related articles are included in each entry. For each culture examined, there are 20 numbered sections that discuss such topics as clothing, holidays, food, family life, rites of passage, and social problems. These sections allow for comparative study. While origins and cultural development are discussed, the emphasis is on contemporary life. Recipes, brief retellings of popular myths and legends, and examples of the written languages enliven the text. While some statistics are presented, no sources are cited."**
