Format: Paperback
A hearty read with photos to back up fieldwork. Covers issues of marriage, relationships, authority, bodies, land, food, house, village, life/death, religion in relation to procreation.
Interesting, engaging and easily comprehended, it works well in a study of anthropology of one Middle Eastern way of life. Feminist issues, religious idealogies, and an intense study of one village causes the author to question along with the reader such basic tenets as Freud's motivations and the meaning/uses of words such as "seed."
A timeless vision of a rich society.

Format: Paperback
Carol Delaney's book is outstanding for a description of cross cultural field work and for an interpretation of the social organization and beliefs in a Muslim community in Turkey. The ideas she presents give the reader pause for thought, because there are many implications for the social fabric.
