Ink inscription to the title page else, contents clean and unmarked with tight, sound binding; very good+. From the Introduction: “Whether or not traditional Eskimo society can be said to have law is a controversial question among both jurists and anthropologists. Whatever the right answer to this question may be, the accounts of the social reality in Eskimo culture appear to intrigue students of law-as-a-social-phenomenon and of anthropological jurisprudence. Indispensable to this study is an adequate knowledge of the social and cultural matrix from which law in the given society emerges.” Card Covers. (#330) $35.00
