Aspects of Caste in South India, Ceylon, and North-West Pakistan

By E. R. Leach | Go to book overview

PREFACE

This is the second of a series of occasional papers in social anthropology published by the Cambridge University Press for the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology of the University of Cambridge. We plan to publish further volumes at intervals of about one year. Each volume will be edited by one member of the editorial board and will contain a number of papers arising out of the anthropological research work carried out in the Department. Each volume will deal, as far as possible, with a single broad topic of theoretical interest. The main contributions will ordinarily take the form of papers based on field research in particular areas and communities but each volume will also include an introductory paper in which the main theoretical issues referred to in the other papers will be explicitly discussed.

The third number of the series will use material mainly from Africa and will be concerned with problems connected with marriage. It will be edited by Professor Meyer Fortes who will also contribute the general introduction.

We are indebted to the Smuts Memorial Fund of the University of Cambridge for a grant in aid of the publication of this series. Thanks are also due to the Behavioral Sciences Division of the Ford Foundation for a personal grant to E. R. Leach which provided research assistance for the present publication.
