About this title

Synopsis:

Using rich ethnographic detail, this work looks at the extent to which new models of kinship, caste and marriage translate into regional and Indian Models. The contributors, all distinguished scholars of South Asia, tackle different geographical areas and such diverse topics as hierarchy, forms of address, ritual, household and widowhood. This edition has a new introduction which discusses current research done in these fields. This book is essential to better understand kinship, the possibilities for cross-cultural comparison, and ways of looking at social change.

About the Author:

Akos Ostor is Professor of Anthropology, Wesleyan University.
