    schema:description "Cultural Intimacy draws on the author's own extensive fieldwork in Greece, as well as on a wide range of comparisons from the United States, Africa, Western Europe, and elsewhere. Herzfeld explores many topics - from sheep-thieves to flight attendants, from the banality of polite chit-chat to the divine vengeance invoked against perjury, and from the personal styles of coffeehouse and barroom to the politics of academia. In all these arenas he finds revealing tensions between the formal idealization of collective self-recognition."@en ;
