"To read the book is to appreciate the highly contingent, provisional, oblique, open-ended way in which people try to make "sense" of another culture." Resil B. Mojares, "Philippine Graphic" "This book is an interestingly complex ethnography that approaches the self-critical dialectical ethnography called for two decades ago....It is a welcome contribution to postmodernist theory and to the ethnography of the Visayas." Ronald Provencher, "Journal of Asian Studies""
Jean-Paul Dumont is the Clarence J. Robinson Professor of Anthropology at George Mason University and author of several books in English and French, including "The Headman and I "and two collections of poetry.
