Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Begins by explaining what is meant by religious cultures, methods for quantifying them, problems with comparing them, and a physio- economic framework for doing so. Then presents tables detailing the economics, demography, sociology of over 400 groups, and the cultural, mineral, land, marine, and climatic resources available to them. Primarily a guide for business managers wanting to target specific populations as markets, but also of possible interest to social scientists and economic planners. One in a four-volume set that also covers linguistic, ethnic, and national cultures. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
