Editorial Reviews


"... will be of value to all interested in contemporary rural Spain in particular and issues of change in general." --Heidi Kelley, University of North Carolina at Asheville

"Kavanagh first arrived in La Nava in 1976. Most of the book was written in 1985, with a preface and epilogue written in 1992. [...] Kavanagh decided against rewriting the book in 1992, adding the epilogue and preface instead. This added dimension makes the book far more valuable than an ethnographic study focusing on one present time. Kavanagh has also located La Nava in its historical and national context more successfully than manu previous studies on Spanish pueblos. This work is a useful addition to the ethnographic literature on the Mediterranean." --South European Society & Politics

"A well-written ethnography... [...] An abundance of illustrations, diagrams and photographs maintain the reader's interest and enhance the tight ethnographic detail." --JASO
