Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Goldkind is concerned here with the classless homogeneity consistently emphasized in all Redfield's interpretations of the village community. This paper is a re-examination of the economic, social and political aspects of life in Chan Kom (based primarily on the data presented in sources 2:Redfield and Villa Rojas and 3:Redfield of this file, plus one summer field work after the paper was written). Goldkind suggests a basic reinterpretation of the social life of that community. He finds 'a heterogeneity significant for the lives of the people of the community and associated with the type of economic, status, and political stratification conceptualized by Weber.'
