Abstract
This is an ethnographic survey of a central Thai village, which Kaufman considers “representative of the area as a whole” (p. 14). Why this should be so remains a mystery, since Kaufman does not use comparative theoretical constructs. This fault is offset somewhat by the descriptive data presented.
