About This Book

Globalization is putting traditional communities to the test. From Eurasia's icy north to Australia's desert and the rain forests of Amazonia, many of these somewhat different citizens of the world are seeking - and insisting upon - their place in the global village. They are "The Survivors". Far from romantic or touristic clichés, this book provides insights into their work life, their ceremonies, their hopes and fears, and their individual strategies to face the challenges of the 21st century. Selected ethnic groups from all climate zones of the earth are highlighted in numerous illustrated portraits - from the Japanese Ainu to the South African Xhosa.
