Abstract

From patent miscommunication, through potent ambiguity to pregnant silence this incisive collection examines from a rare anthropological perspective the many aspects of indirect communication. From a mormon theme park to carnival time on Montserrat the contributors analyze indirection by illustrating how food, silence, sunglasses, martial arts and rudeness constitute powerful ways of conveying meaning.
