ABU-LUGHOD, LILA. - Silent Sentiments: Honor And Poetry In A Bedouin Society.
University of California Press, Berkeley and Los Angeles: 1988. Softcover. Good condition. Anthropologist Lila Abu-Lughod lived with a community of Bedouins in the Western Desert of Egypt for nearly two years, studying the oral lyric poetry through which women and young me express personal feelings that violate their moral code. What begins as a puzzle about a single poetic genre becomes a reflection on the politics of sentiment and the relationship between ideology and human experience. Includes an Index. One of the most insightful and convicing works of person-centerd ethnography in recent years. It provides a model of how contextual knowledge can be used to interpret personal experience in another culture. - Robert LeVine, Harvard University ¶ 317 pages.USD 10.75 [Appr.: EURO 8.25 | £UK 6.5 | JP¥ 1115] Book number 58044X1
