A Sinhala Village in a Time of Trouble:
In this illuminating study of a village in southern, central Sri Lanka, Spencer examines how the interrelationship of political, religious, and economic life shapes the community by tracing the village through an election campaign year. He reveals how the village redefined itself in "traditional" terms, while using "modern" politics as an extension of their personal disputes. Undertaken in the years immediately prior to the great escalation of political and religious tensions, this study is of great importance to the understanding of modern Sri Lanka. [via]
