About the Book

The Ethnographic Atlas is a database on 1167 societies coded by George P. Murdock and published in 29 successive installments in the journal ETHNOLOGY, 1962-1980. It gives ethnographic codes and geographical coordinates but no actual maps (maps were later added by the World Cultures electronic journal's MAPTAB program, by Douglas R. White, along with an electronic version of the codes and the codebooks). A summary volume of the Atlas was published by the University of Pittsburgh Press in 1967. It contained the data on 862 of the better-described societies in each of 412 cultural clusters of the world. Murdock published a new edition with Pittsburgh Press in 1980 titled ATLAS OF WORLD CULTURES, and included 563 of the better-described societies in the atlas, classified in 150 more linguistically-based clusters.
