Descripción

Adopting different modes- narrator, detective, and social scientist- Brass treats incidents of collective violence arising initially out of common ocurrences such as a drunken brawl, the rape of a girl, and the theft of an idol, and demonstrates how some incidents remain localized while others are fit into broader frameworks of meaning, thereby becoming useful for upholders of dominant ideologies Printed Pages: 314.
