Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This article revisits Hildred and Clifford Geertz's previous study on kinship in Balinese society in which the authors noted some important differences in the operation of kinship symbolization between the gentry and commoners. Drawing on analysis of three case studies, the article finds this distinction to be problematic as the kin group of 'commoners' can also be as politically potent as that of the 'gentry'.
