KARSTEN, Rafael **
  • The Head-hunters of Western Amazonas. The life and culture os the Jíbaro Indians os Eastern Ecuador and Peru. Helsingfors 1935. xvi, 598 pp. in-8.º, 20 figuras no textos, 34 pranchas e 1 mapa fora do texto, índice alfabético de nomes e matérias.

Importante monografia baseada em material recolhido pelo autor nos anos de 1916-1919 e 1928-1929.

É digna de nota, porém, a seguinte apreciação feita por M. W. Stirling (Historical and ethnographical material on the Jivaro Indians, p. IX): "It seems to the writer that Karsten's report loses some of its value through the application of too much anthropological theory in such fashion that it is often difficult to detect which information has been obtained directly from the Indians and which is a result of the author's interpretations."

Karsten (pp. 11-13), por sua vez, reprova os trabalhos sôbre êsses índios da Amazônia ocidental, escritos por Rivet e Farabee.
