Cultural Change and Persistence: New Perspectives on Development

Cultural Change and Persistence Edited by William L. Ascher and John M. Heffron
2010

Cultural Change and Persistence about the ways that traditional cultural practices either change or persist in the face of social and economic development, whether the latter proceeds primarily from internal or external forces. The unifying argument of the contributions is that adapting cultural practices and beliefs is often the key to the preservation of core values and societal integrity that enhance human dignity.
