No one, until now,has examined the fact that they are also avid explainers & interpreters of their own customs & etiquette. This engrossing book explores a culture where explanation is an art- in so doing, it addresses the question of how meaning is created & expressed within a particular social context. Meaning is, for them, conveyed through signs rather than through symbols.
