"Each chapter is a mini-treaty detailing, analysing and comparing a version of ancestry, examining a very large amount of facts, practices and representations, providing a wide range of precise and clearly presented data. The authors are all experienced field ethnologists.

The editorial work obeys the law of juxtaposing texts which unify the overall theme and proximity of cultures considered, not to a theory or school of thought. Each author interprets freely, but also looks to the work of his colleagues to verify that the interpretation remains within an acceptable conceptual framework and in the heart of the current debate."
