Scholars explore the exercise of expertise and the criteria by which expert knowledge is judged and validated. Grounded in fieldwork among weavers, builders, healers, diviners, poets, and Islamic scholars, essays reflect upon the words and deeds of skilled practitioners as they are enacted in ritual and the sacred, as well as in everyday life and work.
