This dissertation is a study of PAIPAI, or annual community
religious festivals, in 'Prosperity Settlement', a pseudonymous portion of a LI on the edge
of Taipei City. Gates shows how the PAIPAI and other traditional Taiwanese social forms
function in adapting the economy and social and political organization of the settlement to
the encroaching urban and complexities of urban life.
