This interest can be seen to underlie much of the work discussed above, especially on tribe and camping group. It is also dealt with in the studies of agricultural village communities, by Alberts, Spooner (1965), and in most systematic detail by Uberoi. Uberoi demonstrates how the transfer of property (land) in marriage and inheritance bridges the problematical social gap between the domestic sphere of the family, which, though it is the only exclusive social grouping recognized in Islamic law, lasts only a generation, and the public identity of the male family heads of the community, who strive to maintain the integrity of their estates from generation to generation Anthropology and Anthropologists: The British School in the Twentieth Century.

There was not a single time in my life that I thought any further into language and the driving factors behind language. I walked into lecture the very first day with a neutral opinion and now I can proudly say the knowledge I have gained from this course is one that will be used and expanded for a lifetime....

To that end, NAA personnel have been involved in the efforts of the Council for the Preservation of Anthropological Records The Anthropology of Utopia: Essays on Social Ecology and Community Development. The distance between the researcher and the object of his study has been a characteristic of anthropological research; it has been said of the anthropologist that he was the “astronomer of the sciences of man.” Anthropologists today study more than just primitive societies. Their research extends not only to village communities within modern societies but also to cities, even to industrial enterprises The Making of Asmat Art: Indigenous Art in a World Perspective. If, in particular, it is concerned with generalizing about patterns of human behaviour seen in all their dimensions and with achieving a total description of social and cultural phenomena, this is because anthropology has observed small-scale societies, which are simpler or at least more homogeneous than modern societies and which change at a slower pace. What has just been said refers especially to the branch of anthropology concerned with the cultural characteristics of man Indigenous Peoples of the British Dominions and the First World War (Cambridge Military Histories).

The presumption of a fixed human nature was undercut at the level of natural history by the emergence and eventual acceptance of evolutionary biology Religion: The Social Context.
