An Aleut Bibliography.
Jones, Dorothy M.; Wood, John R.
A selective survey of the available Aleut literature dating from 1802-1973 and published in English, this annotated bibliography (one in a series on Alaska Native groups) is intended as a research tool for those interested in the sociological aspects of the Aleuts and their culture. Section One, designed for quick reference, lists the literature alphabetically by author. Section Two contains both the complete bibliographic information and the annotations, which outline the Aleut information in each referenced work and, when possible, provide the authors' central theses, their disciplines, and brief biographic information. Section Three organizes the literature under four periods in Aleutian history: precontact and aboriginal; Russian administration to 1867; American administration from 1867 through 1940; and the contemporary period, including the World War II years. Within each period, the references are listed by author and include date of publication, time of observation, title, abstract number, and page in bibliography. Section Four identifies the more important articles and books in eight categories: (1) accounts by explorers, scientists, and travelers; (2) formal history; (3) cultural anthropology; (4) material culture; (5) archaeology and prehistory; (6) physical and medical anthropology; (7) linguistics; and (8) economic development.
