Introduction by David Maybury-Lewis

Long viewed as an authority on exotic peoples, National Geographic has drawn together a dozen leading experts to explore for the first time the astounding array of cultures still surviving on Earth, even as many are threatened with extinction.

Spectacular photographs and compelling essays by such notables as Harvard-based anthropologist David Maybury-Lewis, archaeologist and writer Brian Fagan, and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Wade Davis, reveal how people define themselves, their cultures, and their worlds. And an exhaustive reference list of hundreds of cultures worldwide will help readers place ethnic groups in the most remote corners of the globe. Extensive, specially commissioned maps detail the topography and help explain how people develop culture in response to their environments.

In thought-provoking text, these experts not only examine the diversity of these cultures and the regions that produced them but also the notion of ethnicity itself—its impact on history; the effects of immigration on ethnic identity; and the threats facing many of these marginal cultures.

Peoples of the World is a groundbreaking and fascinating book that reveals the true diversity of humankind.
