Item description for The House of Our Ancestors: Precedence and Dualism in Highland Balinese Society by Thomas Reuter...

The House of Our Ancestors is a study of the Mountain Balinese or Bali Aga, an ethnic group with a distinct history and culture who are thought to be the indigenous people of Bali. Hidden in the shadow of the courtly culture of the southern lowlands, the world of the highland Balinese has been largely ignored even though Bali counts among the most researched localities in the world.

This book explores their social organization and status economy from the perspective of an innovative theory of "precedence." Regional domains, villages, and origin houses among the Bali Aga are all conceived and ranked in reference to the basic ideas of a sacred origin in the past, and of an order of precedence connecting the past with the present. This study challenges some of the assumptions that inform contemporary models of the house as a social category and also sheds new light on historical innovations in the domestic architecture of Austronesian societies.
