Format: Paperback
I read this book over fifty years ago, when it was first published.I opened it after supper one evening, and was so engaged in it that I continued to read it through the night. The book advertised here is an abridgement, which I have never seen. The author addresses cultures in organic groups, e.g. Indoeuropean, Circumpolar, Semitic, etc., and shows how the characteristics of their earliest known forms propagate through their subsequent branchings only slowly modified in each of the branches, although still recognizable in their differentiated subcultures even today. If you can find a copy to read, grab it. Linton, by the way, was survived by his widow, who completed the final stages of publication, and owned the rights to it.It shoule not be too much trouble for e.g. Amazon, to track down her heirs and assigns, and to try to acquire rights to digitalization -- hopefully in its original content, rather than abridged.. The result would be an important addition to the corpus of freebie ebooks.

Format: Hardcover
The book is very out of date, but for what it intended to do in its time I don't think it has ever been surpassed. Perhaps it would be too hard to do at present without turning into encyclopedia size.
