Main Description
This new volume explores the limits and possibilities of economic change in transforming the lives of women in rural Greece at a time of great economic and political change. Through her rich and fascinating account of the changing dynamics of rural life in a still-remote part of Europe, Lazaridis provides an important contribution to social anthropology, rural sociology and to the literature on gender and development.
