In all cultures, young children are fed, protected, toilet trained and cared for if they become ill, In all cultures, 'unacceptable' and 'unapproved' behaviour of children are modified at least to some extent. But cultures differ widely in respect of their techniques of rearing children.

The present book is divided in nine chapters. The first chapter gives a general overview of the subject. The second chapter gives an ethnographic profile of the studied tribes. In the third chapter an attempt is made to describe the setting or the background of the villages visited for the study as well as the families included in the sample. The fourth chapter deals with the data on care of mothers in terms of food, rest, health care in the prenatal, natal and postnatal stages. The fifth chapter is about care of the newborn. Various aspects of feeding practices for children such as duration of breastfeeding, introduction of semisolids, types of food supplement, pattern of feeding, preparation of food, food taboos for children as well as nutritional status of children are narrated in chapter six. The seventh chapter focuses on understanding the child rearing practices in respect of health care. This book will prove of utmost use for researchers, teachers and policy planners.

Research Methods in the Field: Eleven anthropological accounts is more than a textbook of research methodologies employed by anthropologists in the course of field work; it provides eleven accounts of the practical experience of working anthropologists. It focuses on the methods employed by them, the ways in which those methods were modified to suit the particular conditions in which they worked, and the reason why particular methods were chosen. These are hands on, warts-and-all accounts of how anthropologists go about field research. The following methodologies are covered:

Participants observation and language learning (Thailand)
The self as research instrument(West Bengal)
Doing anthropology at home(Australia)
The use of informants and research assistants, census taking, sampling techniques and questionnaire design(Kiribati)
Group interviewing on sensitive subjects (Papua New Guinea)

The antiquity of man, from a geologist's point of view, has been placed clearly and fully before the English reading public. In 1865, Lord Avebury approached the problem of man's antiquity from another point of view. He was primarily interested in the culture, the industry, the civilization of ancient man; the geological details of the prehistoric landscape took a secondary place in his pictures of prehistoric times. He sought to follow the human army to its beginning in the remote past by tracing the possessions it had discarded while on the march. Lord Avebury wrote the story of the antiquity of man from the archaeologist's point of view.

The problem of man's antiquity may be approached from another point of view-that of the human anatomist. The anatomist gives ancient man the centre of the stage; he depends on the geologist and archaeologist to provide him with the scenery and stage accessories. It is from the anatomist's point of view that the problem of a man's antiquity is dealt with in this book. This method of approach has its difficulties. The anatomist has to trace man into the past by means of fossil skulls, teeth and limb bones-intelligible documents to him, but complex and repulsive hieroglyphs in the eyes of most people. The mystery of man's antiquity stands in a different position. Every year brings new evidence to light-places facts at our disposal which take us a step nearer to a true solution. In recent years discoveries of fossil man have crowded in upon us, yielding such an abundance of new evidence that we have had to reconsider and recast our estimates of the antiquity of man. No discovery of recent date has had such a wide-reaching effect. Hence the reader will find that a very considerable part of this book is devoted to the significance of that specimen of humanity.

The ideal of co-operation and working together for common good distinguished the man from animals. It was this ideal which was the basis of the emergence of human society and civilization and its subsequent development. The rise of man from barbarism to civilization is the theme of history. The civilization of any country or region was a subject of continuous change both upward and downward. A record and analysis of such a change is, in fact, history. There have been, no doubt, brilliant periods in ancient times in several countries-Egypt, Mesopotamia, India, China, Greece, Rome and elsewhere and that many of these countries witnesses decay, decline and finally extinction. Leaving behind a record of excellence in many fields the great civilization of Knossos vanished three thousand years ago, the old civilization of Nile, leaving behind Pyramids and the Sphinx, and a record of glorious history lasting for several thousand years. Similarly Babylonia, Assyria and Chaldea, the great civilizations of Iran and Iraq whose references are so frequent in Old Testament and Bible also went into oblivion. Dynasties of kings ruled for hundreds of years and then been replaced by others. Rise or fall of any civilization for a while or even total extinction did not make much of a difference to mankind at large, the society grew continually and reached the present level of development when the man has become the master of skies.

Encyclopaedic History of World Civilization deals with the life and condition of various peoples of the six continents of the world from the earliest times, through various stages of development till the time of its publication. This set of sixty five volumes is written for common readers but care has been taken that it is equally helpful to students, teachers, and researchers and to those who seek the most satisfactory writings for historical writings. It is not designed for the specialists but, certainly, it may serve the researcher as a foundation for his research.
