Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0881333573, Paperback)

The Iban are one of the best-described societies of hill farmers in the world. This study analyzes the world of the Iban and demonstrates how an elaborate set of beliefs and rituals binds together the individualistic Iban into a strong community. The "Epilogue: The 1970s and the 1980s," describes the dramatic and wide-ranging changes occurring among the Iban--changes representative of similar developments in the lives of tribal people throughout the world. The old is going, and in many instances, is gone.
