Faction and Conversion in a Plural Society: Religious Alignments in the Hindu KushRobert Leroy Canfield 1973
To mark the completion of their digitization, UMMAA titles are temporarily free-to-read until the end of September 2021.
In this work, anthropologist Robert Leroy Canfield discusses several powerful social systems in central Afghanistan and their impact on the geographical distribution of religious sects in the area. Territorial groups, the kinship network, and community fission all play a part in why people live where they do. Canfield did his fieldwork among the residents of the province of Bamian during the years 1966 to 1968.
