The Question (ID Number 600)...
...and the response:I've never come across a book specifically examining this matter. (If I had, it would be on my recommended list.) I was able to reach this understanding only by reading many anthropological accounts of tribal life. The example given in The Story of B is based on an account given in I, the Aboriginal, by Waipuldanya, an Australian aboriginal, with Douglas Lockwood. It's long out of print, but you can find copies available in the out-of-print section at Barnes & Noble online. I wish I could provide enough ammunition for you to use to change your teacher's mind, but I frankly doubt that even reading all my books would accomplish that. To be honest, I myself wouldn't argue with her (or him); I've never known anyone's mind to be changed by argument.
