Edward Hall lived and worked among the Hopi as a construction foreman in the 1930's. His intimate knowledge of their culture leads him to detail their concept of time and the difference in commitment to finish tasks (action chains). The Hopi method of dealing with territorial and aggression behavior as a result of their closely-led lives in the pueblos and mesas and their rigid and unyielding culture are thoroughly dealt with under the theme of situational behavior.
