Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This is an important general work in English on Greek
village life. It deals with the culture of rural villagers on the mainland of Greece, but
also contains some limited data on the island and urban Greeks. The subject coverage is
comprehensive, although there is relatively little on material culture. The treatment is
divided into five parts: the first is concerned with human and cultural geography; the
second with various aspects of land tenure and use, agriculture and herding; the third with
the family, including women's activities and the life cycle; the fourth with the community,
including mutual aid and cooperatives, the coffeehouse, school, religion, local government,
and the village community; and the fifth with change, including social change in rural
Greece and the social consequences of foreign aid. In addition to his own fieldwork,
Sanders made use of many other sources of information, including much unpublished
