Priests And Cobblers book. It is a short study of the economy and politics of a single Nepali community with special attention to caste and of the changes in the traditional society that were brought about by some economic development, land reform, and the "panchayat system" in the 1960s. The book was part of a series exploring social and economic change in many parts of the world. Thus, the style--dry academic--may have been set in advance. No Nepalese have a voice here, in-depth description is absent, nor does the author put herself in the picture.

The chief emphasis here is on change: on viewing African women as agents of change from the first arrival of Europeans to the present; and on seeking to change the perspective from which African women have been studied in the past. Studies written by both male and female scholars have fixed women in orbits that revolve around men: typical is Remi Clignet Many Wives, Many Powers, a monograph on polygyny that sees it as "a mechanism which facilitates the fulfillment of male aspirations" (Clignet 1970: 357).

A tide of economic and social change swept across the country in the 1920s. Nicknames for the decade, such as the Jazz Age or the Roaring Twenties, convey something of the excitement and the changes in social conventions that were taking place at the time. As the economy boomed, wages rose for most Americans and prices fell, resulting in a higher standard of living and a dramatic increase in consumer consumption.

Language: EnglishPages: 116 (3 B/W Illustration)Back of the BookThis book is a study of the changing relations between members of the priestly caste (Brahmins) and a group of untouchables (Cobblers). The study covers a period of several decades up to the time of fieldwork at the end of the 1960s in a Hindu village in Western Nepal. From a position of almost total economic dependence on the priestly caste, the untouchables had become increasingly independent because of the new opportunities available in the expanding economy of the area. As a result of this they had begun to oppose the Brahmins politically.At the time of the original publication of this book (1972), there was very little published material written by anthropologists on Hindu village society in Nepal, and very little that dealt with relations between high castes and untouchables anywhere else in South Asia. The author does however seek to put her study into wider perspective by comparing it with other literature on change in South Asia.Foreword to the New EditionThis book focuses on a mixed-caste community in the Far Western Hills, here called' Duari', where the upper castes had successfully consolidated themselves at the expense of the lower castes (untouchables, now termed Dalits) not only in terms of land-holding but also educational opportunities, trade and government posts. Nonetheless, at the time of fieldwork, the lower castes had begun to achieve a modicum of economic independence because of new opportunities, and as a result, had dared for the first time to challenge the upper castes politically. I spent nine months carrying out research in Duari, and also visiting neighbouring communities, as well as the local bazaar town and district capital.This project was part of a
