Atlas Narodov Mira (Atlas of the Peoples of the World)
Moscow. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1964. First Edition. Hardcover. Very nice clean tight copy apart from neat inscription to f.e.p.. Brown 'Soviet' cloth, title in gilt to upper board. 112 pages of coloured maps, 184pp.. ; "This first comprehensive atlas of the world’s languages and peoples has 60 excellently drafted, multi-colored ethnic maps, and 11 showing population density. The text discusses construction of population maps, and specific questions arising from mapping racial, language, religious, and nationality groups. It is not an “ethnographic atlas” in the sense of showing only premodern tribal distributions, to the exclusion of populations of recent colonial or immigrant origin. Even so the atlas locates 1,600 ethnic groups as of 1961, which when corrected for groups present in more than one country, are reduced to 910. Soviet scholars have been much concerned with ethnogenesis, and this atlas poses many such questions sharply. The compilers were fully aware of inconsistencies and ambiguities likely to be encountered in attempting to classify and then map the world’s peoples". Gordon W. Hughes. "The Atlas Narodov Mira has been used extensively to investigate the effects of ethnic divisions, but little is known about how it defines ethnicity. Most theories of ethnicity emphasize the tendency of group members to marry within the group (endogamy). This note surveys studies of ethnic intermarriage to evaluate whether the groups in the Atlas: (1) are endogamous and (2) have no endogamous subgroups. I find that the groups are generally endogamous but there are a number of cases of groups with endogamous subgroups. Therefore, the data tend to underestimate ethnic divisions".
