Summary, etc.:
"What is it like to live surrounded by the harsh &mate and stark landscapes of the Arctic tundra? While there is considerable scholarly literature on the Inuk a particular place or touching on a specific issue such as religion or hunting, no recent scholarship has attempted to provide a broad description of this intriguing cultureuntil now." "Daily Life of the Inuit is the first serious study of contemporary Inuit culture and communities from the post-World War II period to the present. Beginning with an introductory essay surveying Inuit prehistory; geography, and contemporary regional diversity, this exhaustive treatment explores the daily life of the Inuit throughout the North American Arcticin Alaska, Canada, and Greenland." "Twelve thematic chapters acquaint the reader with the daily life of the contemporary Inuit, examining family; intellectual culture, economy, community, politics, technology, religion, popular culture, art, sports and recreation, health, and international engagement. Each chapter begins with a discussion of the historical and cultural underpinnings of Inuit life in the North American Arctic and describes the issues and events relevant to the contemporary Inuit experience. Leading sources are quoted to provide analysis and perspective on the facts presented."--BOOK JACKET.
