Joel M. Halpern

It is also a continuing process of adaptation to an ever evolving technology, as inhabitants of the most developed industrial states have discovered. Further, it has been unevenly manifested and has impacted differently on various age, sex, nationality and occupational groups. A peasant Serb may react differently than a Slovene farmer. With this in mind, on the following pages are presented abbreviated autobiographies by culturally diverse peasant groups then within the common state of Yugoslavia, all of them sharing in a rural origin in Southeast Europe.
