KIRKUS REVIEW

The bases of modern living as they originated in primitive cultures the world over, popularly retraced by a well-known anthropologist. This goes back to the foundations of tools, habits, traditions, beliefs; of houseforms, fire, light, food; of the use of cosmetics and jewels; of the necessities of hunting and agriculture; of the first machines and inventions, the early crafts and trades; food, drink, games, sports, dances; transportation, communication; education and the law; magic and religion.
