Essays collected here examine different expressions of popular cultures how such cultures and expressions emerged, who used them, and what changed them. The study does not investigate the cultural mucilage of inherited wisdom, but instead focuses on people's preconceptions and passions, watching, as the editors put it, the waves, not the water. Threads running through these 13 essays by contributors that include Stephen Jay Gould and Thomas L. Benjamin are the invention of traditions, the creation of national identity, formation of gender roles, the prevalence of ethnicity, and the interplay between textual deconstruction and performance analysis, all done through writings around particular events an acts such as cooking, dance, carnivals, funerals, medicine, etc. Each essay is preceded by an abstract.
