520 1  "Why do market farmers in the rugged northern Philippine 
       highlands stage ever more costly, elaborate ritual feasts 
       so that their ancestors will shower success on ever more 
       costly, ecologically risky farming ventures? Because the 
       commercialization of agriculture in the area surrounding 
       Buguias has resulted in a unique blend of new and old 
       economic, environmental, and religious practices. Wagering
       the Land documents clearly the ecological degradation 
       commonly associated with "modern" farming methods: 
       deforestation, soil erosion, pesticide contamination, and 
       wildlife extermination. But the breakdown of communal 
       bonds and local beliefs also associated with modernization
       in most theories of rural development simply has not 
       happened. On the contrary, traditional beliefs, and 
       especially the redistributive prestige feasts that figure 
       largely in the indigenous religion (called Paganism by 
       both its adherents and its adversaries), have flourished."
       "Development of truck gardening in the cool highlands of 
       northern Luzon, an area perfectly suited to the 
       cultivation of temperate vegetables, gained momentum after
       World War II. Martin Lewis describes engagingly the 
       economic and social life of Buguias and the centrality of 
       religion during the first four decades of this century, 
       the complete destruction of prewar agriculture and animal 
       husbandry in 1944, and the explosion of commercial farming
       thereafter. Unaccustomed prosperity reinforced the 
       religious practice of lavish communal feasting, which not 
       only honors the dead and bolsters the status of the living
       but also brings "good luck" to the host farmer's 
       enterprise if the ritual succeeds in placating the 
       ancestors. Heavenly favor thus overshadows sound 
       environmental practices, and the region's inhabitants are 
       quite literally wagering their lands in the hope of 
       gaining prosperity and prestige. Anthropologists and 
       geographers, as well as environmental and development 
       specialists interested in the Third World in general and 
       Southeast Asia in particular, will find important new 
       information and arguments in Lewis's well-researched 
546    English.
