This work is a general study of the community of Orasac in the heart of traditional Old Serbia. Ethnographic coverage in this document is best on economic life, socio-political organization, the life cycle, the role and world view of Serbian peasants, and social change in Orasac and Serbia during the last one hundred years (circa the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth centuries). The original field work of the author was further supplemented by an additional year and a half which he spent in Yugoslavia and Orasac during 1961-1962 and the summers of 1964 and 1966.
