The most current and detailed case study of South Asia available, this book documents the ways in which the members of a remote agricultural village cope with the dangers that plague them by employing a complex system of ritual practices and beliefs in supernatural forces. The book also addresses topics commonly neglected in other case studies, such as formal education problems in remote areas, the independent and self-confident women of the developing world, and the trials of developmental work in these areas.
