This is a brilliant book on how the weak seeks revenge and 'attacks' the strong, in the most subtle, indirect yet effective ways. However, since the data collected is based on field work conducting during the day time, the author has totally excluded one of the most powerful weapons of the weak, namely, the use of magic(black or white), an activity usually initiated and conducted after dark. Since the author spends most of his time at night to write his field notes, he failed to gather material on the 'nocturnal' weapon of the weak. Sadly, we are only offered only half weapon of the weak.
