Description

Edited by Henry J. Rutz. AES Monography Number 4.
 
From the introduction:
"The unifying idea of this collection is that time is an object of power relations. Contributors are concerned with different forms of objectification and more especially, with contests of power that shape time as both concept and resource. There now exists a substantial literature on the anthropology of time. Most of it, however, focuses on time concepts in disparate cultures or, alternatively, on the measurement of time. The emphasis has been on asking questions about what time is, how it is reckoned, or what standard is used to measure it. This collection, in contract, emphasizes the multiplicity of times within single social formations, the potential for social conflict that arises from competing times, and the struggle or resistance that ensues when one group attempts to dominate the time of anotehr in the interest of power."
