SIDER, Gerald M. Culture and class in anthropology and history : A Newfoundland example. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, (1993). Third Paperback Printing. Pp (6),vii-xiii,(3),3-205,(5),+ 8 pp.photos. Maps. 8vo, illustrated red and black card covers. Cambridge Studies in Social Anthropology No.60. "Rooted in two centuries of the history of daily life in the fishing villages of Newfoundland and Labrador, this study develops a historical anthropology that interweaves ordinary moments (naming a child, families eatinga meal together) with spectacular and suspenseful customs (masked mummers and ritualized liars) and with such fundamental confrontations as which fisher families the fish merchants would allow to starve, and why. By exploring such questions as how folk culture is transformed when it ceases to be central to labor discipline, how it connects and separates daily life and domination, and how it enters the arena of state politics, this book enables us further to understand the role of custom and culture on history." - from rear cover.
