Newar castes again

  • Stephen Greenwold
Hide All

* S. M. Greenwold, Monkhood versus Priesthood in Buddhism, Newar, in von FÜrer-Haimendorf, Christoph (ed.), Contributions to the Anthropology of Nepal (Warminister, Aris and Phillips, 1974), pp. 129–149; Id., Buddhist Brahmans, European Journal of Sociology, XV (1974), 101–123; Id., Kingship and Caste, id. XVI (1975), 49–75; Anne Vergati Stahl, M. Greenwold et les Néwars. Doit-on vraiment recourir à deux modèles du système des castes au Népal? id. XVI (1975), 310–316.

* In ending I should like to correct an error in the published text of “Kingship and Caste”: on page 54 sufficient appears where the word should have been insufficient, so that the text should have read: ‘[…] then a sideration of the structural principle of purity and pollution by itself is insufficient for an understanding of caste.’
