Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This document is a clearly written and well organized study
on Balinese social structure at the village level. The author throughout the text points
out the difficulties in constructing a 'representative type' or 'typical' Balinese village.
He therefore analyzes the Balinese social structure by means of seven planes of social
affiliation and interaction (temple units, hamlets, irrigation societies-which have been
indexed under , titled hierarchy or castes, corporate kinship systems-which have been
indexed for WATER SUPPLY, voluntary group organization, governmental units) and how these
intersect and overlap one another. Three Balinese villages are discussed to illustrate the
variance and function of these affiliations. Footnotes which appear at the end of the
document have been indexed for their appropriate subject categories only when these differ
in subject from the body of the text.
