One sample search might be something like: Africa AND ethnic group*
Or just the name of the culture group, combined with the phrase "social conditions" : Asian AND "social conditions"
Another example of combining concepts/terms, like this: Hispanic* AND cultur*
The asterisks at the end of the word are truncation features, and allow you to pick up variations of the word:
culture or cultures or cultural without having to type out separately all the variations of a word.
The quotation marks around a phrase mean, search for that exact phrase, not each word separately.
