They have a varied occupational pattern ranging from the most 'backward' hunting and collection to the most sophisticated professions of the modern world. they live in different types of society with different ethnic situations, having different social structures, different rites de passages, different interactional patterns and network of relations. the customs, manners and the norm in their societies also vary. They have embraced different religious faths with variesd rites and rituals and also different religious faiths with varied rites and rituals and also different world views. But inspite of this variations a common under-current of humanism has tied the whole human race. this book in honour of Professor Prabodh Kumar Bhowmick, has captured some aspects of Different human societies and culture as found in different parts of this world. No doubt to cover all the human societies and cultures in a book is impossible, but at least some cases could be incorporated to give a fairly good impression about some aspects of certain human societies and cultures. these articles contributed by eminent scholars and academicians, have highlighted certain areas of human activites, and as such this book would deginitely create much interest among the members of the diciplines of social sciences and also others who are interested to study human societies and cultures in the global context.
