1 Detlef Kantowsky
An Indian Village Through Letters and Pictures
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 1999; 0195650204 / 9780195650204; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
A classic work of reflective and visual anthropology, An Indian Village through Letters and Pictures , is an intimate and vivid picture of the village of Rameshvar near Varanasi. Reassembling his fieldwork data (1965-7) in the light of subsequent revisits to the village over a twenty-year period, Kantowsky contends that an anthropologist becomes aware of his own subjectivity once he begins to interpret his fieldwork data and it is precisely this mesh of subjectivity and objectivity, in which concepts are interwoven with interests, and general theory with personal history, that makes the fieldwork meaningful. This book is abundantly illustrated with photographs, letters, and diary excerpts, and will appeal to general readers as an authentic documentation of the socio-cultural configurations of a typical north Indian village. A sound ethnography with significant implications for anthropological method, it will be of great value for students of sociology and social anthropology. Printed Pages: 203. 029112
