(p.84) Chapter Four Making the Community: George Town in Social History
Public Faces, Private Voices

Mattison Mines

University of California Press

This chapter explores the social history of George Town and the role which civic individuality has played in its construction, explaining that the town was organized as it is because leaders have made it that way, and because ordinary townspeople have been motivated by self-interest to assist in that construction. It discusses the role of religion in the organization of Black Town society, and argues that recognizing the essential role individuality plays as a cause of organization, and as an integral feature greatly affects how Indian society is conceptualized.

Keywords:   social history, George Town, civic individuality, leaders, religion, Black Town society
