The research upon which this article is based was conducted in 1959–60 with the primary support of a Faculty Research Fellowship of the Social Science Research Council and a Foreign Area Fellowship granted by the Ford Foundation. A shorter and quite different version of the paper was read at the annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association in Detroit in November 1964. I wish to acknowledge with gratitude the suggestions and criticisms offered at the time and on other occasions by Drs. Floyd Lounsbury and David Schneider. Dr. Marvin Harris read a draft of the present contribution, and I am indebted to him for his helpful commentary.
