Product Description:

This collection explores -- in rich detail -- the nature of community in rural Cambodia. It examines the debates about the ways community -- or its absence -- is reflected in social organization reciprocity religion gender and a shared sense of trust. It also considers questions of community in the lead-up to and the aftermath of the catastrophic Pol Pot period. The book's essays have been inspired by the life and works of the late May Ebihara who was a pioneer in the anthropology of rural Cambodia and who was a friend and mentor to all of the contributors to the collection. Taken as a whole like much of Ebihara's path-breaking work this book deals with processes of grassroots transformation. The book also includes a bibliography of Ebihara's works as well as an interview with her in which she reflects on Cambodia and her career in anthropology.
