The main focus of the volume - the processes of choice and decision-making in different economic systems - offers exceptional scope for the convergence of economic and anthropological perspectives. It concentrates on transactions that both express and influence social relationships and values.

Covering a wide geographic area there are specific studies on societies in Equatorial Africa, Colombia, South India and the Balkans.

First published in 1967.


'The papers brought together by Professor Firth are a valuable contribution.' - John Goldthorpe, New Statesman
