9780123573506: Demography of the Dobe !Kung (Population and social structure)

First published in 1979, this is a classic study of the population of the Bushmen of the Kalahari Deselt of Botswana. Using methods that are simple and fully illustrated, the author presents empirical descriptions of the fertility, mortality, and marriage patterns of the famous !Kung hunter-gatherers.

Review:

"...a superb job of exploring the linkages between demography (narrowly defined) and several other important areas of research, including reproductive physiology, kinship structure, and population genetics." James W. Wood, Pennsylvania State University "... will interest anthropologists, demographers, and human biologists because of its methods... and its implications for hunter-gatherer existence, once prevalent but rapidly disappearing in the late 20th century." Science "...a quantitative, narrow, clear study, with remarkable data and long sequences of photographs of individuals over the life span." Scientific American
