Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
In this study, the author has attempted to show how the
role of kinship in Greece acts as a mechanism for maintaining rural-urban connections, and
how this mechanism continues to function despite any upward mobility changes on the part of
the Greek peasant. This paper tries to point up the particular significance of kinship in
the intricate network of group relations between rural and urban areas of Greece and to
show the process by which, at least in the area of the village of Vasilika, where the
author did her fieldwork, the 'elite' are quite often likely to be one's own relations.
This source, which is based on the author's 1955-1956 fieldwork, is a revised version of a
paper prepared for a symposium on European peasant cultures held at the annual meeting of
the American Anthropological Association at Chicago in December 1957.
