Reviews
Judith Beyer has done a magnificent job of unfolding current notions of legalism among the Kyrgyz of Talas province. Her prose is crystal clear, her ethnography is rich, and her theoretical engagement is stimulating and accessible. This book deserves a place on readers' shelves alongside the best works on the anthropology of post-socialist Eurasia.-- "Paolo Sartori, Institute of Iranian Studies, Vienna"
