Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter focuses on the political anatomy of the Remo towns during the nineteenth century, thus privileging the social anatomy of institutions over the explanation of historical processes. The primary concern is to introduce the reader to the historically embedded functioning of Remo's main political, ritual and social institutions in different contexts and over time, in order to explain both the enduring nature of important political dynamics, and the changing historical debates and struggles surrounding and appropriating them.

Keywords: Remo towns; nineteenth century; political institutions; ritual institutions; social institutions
