This book is a description of tradition and belief in a mountain village of central Greece. The hostility and competition in society at large are seen as deriving from the positive values of affection, trust, and loyalty which are those of the family and which the villager is unable to combine with love of his neighbour. The role system for man and woman highlights the centrality of the house and sidelights the ways in which villagers relate to one another in friendship, quarrels, lies and gossip.
