Rituals as social glue
The book »Rituals« deals with a topic, which most of us seem to have no connection to. It sounds rather outworn, conservative and obsolete. However, there is no culture, nation, family or any other group that can do without rituals. Even though they're often unnoticed, rituals do have a great influence on our group cohesion and social fabric. A rising number of sociologists, ethnologists ans psychologists are seeking to find out, how exactly rituals effect us. Those theories as well as a choice of exemplary rituals from around the world are explained in informative collages.
