Gerald Berreman's ethnographic study of a hill village in India is widely regarded as a classic in the field of social anthropology. In this new edition, Berreman returns to this village after ten years to record the ethnographic continuity and change in village lifestyle. A new prologue addsimportant insights to the bases for the ethnographic descriptions and analyses by outlining the research conditions of this study. A new epilogue records Berreman's findings after revisiting the village--focusing on the trends found in the village and the surrounding region to draw implications forthe country at large.
