Abstract:

Taking an in-depth look at distinct aboriginal cultures, these comprehensive volumes balance information about both traditional and modern lifeways. From their history and cultural practices to their religions and the landscapes they call home, discover the intricacies of each featured native culture. Supports the national curriculum standards Culture; Time, Continuity, and Change; People, Places, and Environments; Individuals, Groups, and Institutions; Power, Authority, and Governance; Production, Distribution, and Consumption; Science Technology and Society; and Global Connections as outlined by the National Council for the Social Studies. Found in the vast arid deserts of the Middle East and Northern Africa, the Bedouin are a nomadic people. Although historically herders of sheep, goats, cattle, and camels, over the past few decades, the Bedouin have had to trade their traditional existence for a more conventionally modern one.
