Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
The materials in this book were first delivered in a course
of lectures in 1936; essentially the first report on the results of the Harvard Irish
Expedition. There are six lectures: interpretation of custom; countrymen at work; the
family and the land; boys and men; shops, pubs and fairs; and the character and motivations
of the people. As a whole, this is a functional study of the rural life, revealing how many
seemingly unrelated aspects of country life are closely bound together by the ties of
friendship and kinship.
