This volume is a "sampling" of the works of 18 living poets whom the author knew in Lahore, Pakistan between 1959 and 1962, and whom he considers to be representative of the style and quality of the "gazel" genre. Each selection appears in Urdu (Arabic script), with its English translation, and explanatory notes. The Introduction contains brief biographical descriptions of the poets. Appendix One discusses Urdu poetics--(1) the types of poetic composition, (2) rhyme, (3) scansion, (4) measure and meter, (5) catalexis, and (6) an analysis of the meters used in the text. The appended Vocabulary is presented in Urdu and phonemic transcription, with English glosses. The authors suggest that this volume may be used by students on the second year level who have finished "a Course in Urdu." (See ed 013 435-7.) Two other works in the Urdu language, forthcoming from the same project at the Institute of Islamic Studies at McGill University, are "An Urdu Newspaper Reader" and "An Urdu Newspaper Wordcount."

The Klamath are Native Americans living in southwestern Oregon. This file consists of 11 documents. The focus of the literature is on tribal origins, traditional culture, social change, and mythology. The earliest by Gatschet is based on field work carried out in 1877 and includes information on geography, settlements, folklore, language, and mythology. Spier produced a "memory ethnography" based on informant recollections of ca. 1860 tribal life. He also compared Klamath cultural traits with those of neighboring groups in order to establish Klamath origins and affiliations. Stern wrote about the history, culture, and politics of the Klamath reservation and a study of Klamath myths and their narration. Barker also recorded Klamath mythology and life histories. Other articles in the file include studies of Klamath childhood and socialization (Pearsall), material culture (Barrett), personality and acculturation (Clifton and Levine), comparative religion (Spencer), and songs and their interpretation (Weaver)
