A Punjabi Village in Perspective

Book I: A Punjabi Village in Pakistan: The Community; Book II: The Economic Life of a Punjabi Village: The Land and the Economy

Zekiya Suleyman Eglar

This volume combines two books, the award-winning A Punjabi Village in Pakistan and The Economic Life of a Punjabi Village and both are based on extensive fieldwork in Pakistan. Together the books contain relevant insights into Pakistani society, particularly women, which are still pertinent today, as well as a more holistic and humanistic view of village life in South Asia. Eglar's study is useful for precisely what she focused on-the patterns of ritual service and gift exchange which underlay every facet of life in a village
