First Sentence
The recent burst of efforts to adapt the biological discipline of ecology-the science which deals with the functional relationships between organisms and their environment-to the study of man is not simply one more expression of the common ambition of social scientists to disguise themselves as "real scientists," nor is it a mere fad. Read the first page

Farming As A Cultural System 15 Feb. 2009
By Chimonsho - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Though his qualitative studies of culture are more famous, "AI" is probably Clifford Geertz's most influential empirical work. It presents 2 main concepts: first, agricultural involution, a significant form of intensification but which may not bring actual development; and second, the divide between irrigated and swidden (slash & burn) farming. He develops these ideas with clarity and authority, enough to have inspired many comments and some revision, but the book's core remains permanently valuable. Both concepts have applications beyond Indonesia and wet-rice regions, and his historical approach provides essential time depth. Clearly Geertz's 1950s sojourn in the Indies was among the most fruitful fieldwork stints ever, producing a raft of classic books and essays. "The Religion of Java" is merely one among these, while F. Bray, "The Rice Economies" is very useful for context.
