    schema:reviewBody ""This is the first full-scale study of the work of Clifford Geertz, who is one of the best-known anthropologists in the world today. Fred Inglis situates Geertz's thought in the context of his life and times, reviewing its forty-year range." "Geertz's progress is charted in detail by his field work in Java, Bali and Morocco, as well as his work in the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. His two collections of essays, the Interpretation of Cultures and Local Knowledge, are summarized and criticized. The celebrated and controversial essay on the Balinese cockfight is defended against its critics, and in an extended conclusion, his account of the Balinese Theatre-State is, as Geertz suggests, proposed as a more adequate method for the combined study of culture and politics than the professionals' routine application of heavy-handed concepts such as 'power' and 'status'."--Jacket." ;
