People of the Plain by David D. Gilmore
Book DescriptionDiverging from previous ethnographic studies of Spain that have limited themselves primarily to tiny mountain villages, Gilmore focuses on class relations and traditional culture in Fuenmayor, an Andalusian farming town of 8,000, to provide a greater understanding of complex societies. Unlike studies focused on homogeneous villages, Gilmore's study depicts a rural life characterized by class antagonism, political polorization, and occasional violence. As an ethnographic study of a single community, "The People of the Plain" breaks new ground by exploring the relationship between class conflict, political regression, and traditional culture in a modern complex society. At the same time, it provides an engaging view of Andalusian rural life in the twilight of the Franco regime.

Monsters, Paperback (September 2009)
A field guide to the world's scary creatures, along with an intriguing explanation why monsters won't go away. Gilmore considers the role of monsters in the human psyche and in society, looking at art, folktales, fantasy, literature, and other sources.
Manhood in the Making, Paperback (July 1991)» View all books by David D. Gilmore
In this cross-cultural study of manhood as an achieved status, the author finds that a culturally sanctioned stress on manliness - on toughness and aggressiveness, stoicism and sexuality - is almost universal, and deeply ingrained in the consciousness of men who otherwise have little in common.
