Comparing public events - a domain which includes ritual and related occasions - the author argues that any public event must first be comprehended through the logic of its design. It is the logic of organization of an occasion which establishes in large measure what that occasion is able to do in relation to the world within which it is created and practiced.

I intended Models and Mirrors to be a book of ideas on what is (still so loosely and at times lightly) called 'ritual' in anthropology and cognate disciplines, and not a compendium of truth, or, for that matter, even of knowledge on the subject. How phenomena that may be called 'rituals' exist in (and through) social worlds is of extreme importance.

Oxford: Berghahm Books. The anthropological study of the prenuptial rituals of immigrants from Georgia to Israel, and my experience with the ethnic pride of the celebrators, most of them young, lead me to conclude that these rituals serve as collective ethnic definitional ceremonies for them, where crossing between ethnicity, culture and identity takes place. The new ritual tradition in Israel fulfills an important role in the identity of the youths of this community and in the solidarity of the Georgian family and community.

In this comparative study of public events, Professor Handelman investigates rituals as epistemological phenomena in their own right. He argues that any public event - including both ritual and related occasions - must first be comprehended through the logic of its design.
  • Exactly as advertised. In good condition

  • Models and Mirrors, for me, is one of the rarest experiences in coming close to a thinker's modes of making perceptions, analysis and the making of connections. The ways of thinking are so transparent that the reader is never gone out of touch with the logical labyrinth, which the author creates in the universe of Models and Mirrors. The very question that arises in your mind after reading a line, the author has touched it in the very next one, leading the reader through such inspiring steps into the ecology of mind.
    Rituals are no more the long, boring corridors of the anthropologist's `pure' disciplinary travelogues- Models and Mirrors have rescued them from their exclusive sites of enactment making them observable to everyone of us whatever your field or discipline may be. Similarly, it makes you look underneath the fascinating spectacles around, so that we may continually ask, how much has actually changed in our lived- in- world. How impactful are the `changes' that we usually see (mostly talk about) on the surface?
    Students of all disciplines, artists and composers, theorists concerned about social transformation, intellectuals stuck up in their `cultural contexts' and anyone who likes an exciting mind traveling-can find this book authored by anthropologist, Don Handelman, significantly moving.
    Models and Mirrors is such a tempting and inspiring volume; poetic and thought provoking; I carry it with me always- the most friendly, caring and challenging work I've encountered.

  • I got Models and Mirrors from a friend's private collection yesterday. Yeah, a delayed discovery of a brilliant work, by now classic. What to do, good books like many other good developments reach India in bullock carts, I mean, the time it takes to come from abroad; may be it has reached some centres here much earlier; I live in the fringes...Nevertheless, classic is a classic, it will be discovered and re-discovered in generations to come.
    Models and Mirrors was my discovery of yesterday, thanks to my lucky friendship. One night of reading, I am conquered. Can I own a copy? I should try.
    I wasn neither a follower of systems theory; nor am I an anthropologist. I teach political science; Diversity in Models and Mirrors,that fascinates. All-encompassing...Play, work, masks, clown-convincingly sweeping conception of bureaucracatic logic; True it is there everywhere, even under your bedcover!
    I loved the intersections, great minds don't distinguish between work and life...Such a pleasure to sail through the pages, wondering and wandering...
