Summary/Abstract: “This book is a result of fieldwork undertaken for the project Anthropology of Continuity and Change: Macedonian Poreče 80 Years after Józef Obrębski's Research” implemented at the University of Warsaw in the years 2012–2013. Our aim was to create a contemporary monograph on Poreče through critical analysis of collected field material, by posing the same or similar questions as Obrębski did 80 years ago. The research focused primarily on subjects explored by Obrębski, for instance family, yearly rituals, religion, magic, or the position of women in the rural society. Secondly we investigated new topics like the political, economic, and social changes related to the collapse of Yugoslavia and the painful transition process in Macedonia (from the Foreword by Karolina Bielenin-Lenczowska and Anna Engelking).
