Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Comfort of Kin contains the table of contents, acknowledgments, author's note, list of figures, list of tables and list of charts. The book is a broadly constructed monograph on the Samaritans. Originally, it was conceptualized with a narrower focus, as a study of Samaritan marriage. The intricate marriage patterns of the community constitute a corollary of "assumptions concerning the social order" that prevail in the Middle East. The book describes form of social mapping that is significant for a region traditionally characterized by sectarian division, and which puts the Samaritans in the category of religious-ethnic community or minority.
