This concluding chapter fleshes out some of the points raised in the book in more general terms. In other words, it brings together earlier sections in ways that might be of use when thinking about processes of development and change in other places. The chapter looks again at churches and their part in the life of the village, as well as at burial societies and the significance of people's ideological concerns. It restates the author's concern to approach development and change in an open-ended way, treating the role of government with greater scepticism, and considering the possible relationships between very different forms of organisation and different sorts of meanings.
