This is a study of a more conservative rural French community than that depicted in Laurence Wylie’s widely acclaimed Village in the Vaucluse (HUP, 1957). The authors are in search of a definition of Chanzeaux: what makes this village different from others, how is it part of a larger social structure and of France as a nation, what do its citizens think of themselves and their place in the world, how has it changed over the years and what problems must it confront in the future? The book is the work of seventeen students under the direction and general editorship of Laurence Wylie.
