Description - Visayan Vignettes by Jean-Paul Dumont
"To read the book is to appreciate the highly contingent, provisional, oblique, open-ended way in which people try to make "sense" of another culture."--Resil B. Mojares, "Philippine Graphic" "This book is an interestingly complex ethnography that approaches the self-critical dialectical ethnography called for two decades ago....It is a welcome contribution to postmodernist theory and to the ethnography of the Visayas."--Ronald Provencher, "Journal of Asian Studies"
