Abstract: "In her lead essay, Tine DeMoor directs our attention to the obvious, but often forgotten, fact that the past is not an entirely different country from the present and that they who lived in the past did not do things all that much differently there. Not only is the past still with us in the form of institutional layers of customs, laws and doctrines that still shape a path dependent future. But more importantly, the past was not the stable state it is often imagined, a static traditional society that did not change until modernity arrived with its dynamics and turned everything upside down."
