Summary: When Saints, Scholars, and Schizophrenics was published twenty years ago, it became an instant classic--a beautifully written study tracing the social disintegration of ''Ballybran,'' a small village on the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland. In this richly detailed and sympathetic book, Nancy Scheper-Hughes explores the symptoms of the community's decline: emigration, malaise, unwanted celibacy, damaging patterns of childrearing, fear of intimacy, suicide, and schizophreni morea. Following a recent return to ''Ballybran,'' Scheper-Hughes reflects in a new preface and epilogue on the well-being of the community and on her attempts to reconcile her responsibility to honest ethnography with respect for the people who shared their homes and their secrets with her.

Winner of the Margaret Mead Award from the Society for Applied Anthropology in conjunction with the American Anthropological Association. less
