The Iban of Sarawak:
Chronicle of A Vanishing World
Vinson H Sutlive
This is an updated edition of Sutlive's study published in 1978. It appears that the original text has been left in tact, but an epilogue added. The main enquiry pursued by the author is how the individuality of the Iban, essential in their nomadic and warlike life of the past, relates to the way they live in community. Besides being headhunters, they have developed the socially cohesive longhouse, which can house up to 70 families. As the study develops we see how these characteristics equip and hinder the Iban as they adapt to the modern world. 210 pages with 16 pages of black and white photographs.
