Synopsis

This book takes the newest approach in anthropology--what is most frequently called reflexive ethnography wherein the anthropologist provides information on the researcher as well as the researched--one step further. After years of anthropological research in diverse cultures of the world, Romanucci-Ross, in this study, returns to the town in Italy where her Italian/American family came from. In Ascoli Piceno she is not only anthropological researcher but niece and aunt, cousin and daughter; here the professional outsider with the insider's perspective deals effectively with the parallax error inherent in views of observer and observed in the anthropological enterprise. A beautifully written yet scholarly account of a vivid and lively culture, this book is also a groundbreaking approach to the ever growing effort by anthropologists to overcome the limitations that emerge from the separation between researcher and subjects.
