This collection contains three papers on the Cotabato Manobo language and culture and one on a variety of cultures. "Cotabato Manobo Grammar" by Harland Kerr is an extensive description of the grammar focusing on syntactic relationships within it. "Cotabato Manobo Ethnography" by Harland Kerr is a 1957 ethnographic study based on observations during a year of residence with this Philippine people. In "The Magic of the Cotabato Manobos" by Ross Errington, the practice, functions, and perceptions of magic among the Manobos is examined, and the need for functional substitutes as the culture changes, particularly with the growth of Christianity, is noted. "Ethnic Stereotypes: Their Role in Parent-Child Communication" by Renato Y. Pablo and R. C. Gardner reports a study of how parents and their children use stereotypical information about different ethnic groups, whether parent-child communication of stereotypes improves with age, and whether the communication process is influenced by factors such as ethnic group label and amount of stereotypical information.
