Where to buy it


Beyond ecologic, economic and kinship relationships, this is a study of symbolic behaviour--notably verbal communication, attitudes towards 'strangers' and witchcraft practices. This book demonstrates how predictable behaviour, on which social life depends, is generated and coded in Cat Harbour.
