Description

Heady draws on both participant observation and interviews with older informants to trace the effects of recent exogenous technological and institutional changes, and the way local people have responded to them. His findings relate to such themes of recent history as nationalism, regionalism and anti-clericalism; and contribute to the theoretical debate on the relevance of structuralist anthropology to European societies.
