Editorial Reviews

Review

"I have used this book in the classroom and received extremely positive feedback from students, who appreciate Argyrou's lucid expositions of theory and rich ethnographic descriptions. I recommend it highly." David Sutton, H-Net Reviews

"The book will engage you....It is a book that should provoke some welcomed debate and a fresh perspective on otherwise tired issues. I have used this book in the classroom and received extremely positive feedback from students, who appreciate Argyrou's lucid expositions of theory and rich ethnographic descriptions. I recommend it highly." David Sutton, H-Net Reviews

Book Description

The subject of Vassos Argyrou's study is modernization, as reflected in the changing nature of wedding celebrations in Cyprus over two generations. He argues that modernization is not a secular, progressive process that remodels the life of a society, but rather, it is an idiom - a legitimising discourse - in which Cypriots represent, and contest their social relationships. At the same time, by involving modernization, they are submitting to foreign standards, and accepting the symbolic domination of Europe.
