The fifteen essays in this collection demonstrate various aspects of celebrations of cultures and the importance they have in those cultures. Topics include: feminine processions and masculine parades; political activism and quietism in Shi'a rituals; civic socializing in Puritan New Engl the circus and American culture; the Wild West shows; beauty pageants; theme parks; Bourbon Street, New Orleans; and Stonehenge.Browne, Ray B. is the author of 'Cultures of Celebrations' with ISBN 9780879726522 and ISBN 0879726520.
