'I expect it to be both a popular and useful text for teaching the anthropology of law.' David Brokensha, Professor Emeritus, Department of Anthropology and Environmental Studies, University of California at Santa Barbara'This is a book worht reading, and quite appropriate for undergraduate courses. It gives the flavour of recent ethnography in bite-sized, digestible chunks and illustrates theoretical ideas not only about disputes, but also, as Caplan points out, about more fundamental aspects of social life.'JASO
