Example text

Some were shepherds following their flocks over the Pyrenees, some were itinerant soldiers, while others travelled south to u Barry Wellman the Spanish coast or west along the Mediterranean to northern Italy. The people of Montaillou had frequent contact with other villages, and passing travellers often gave them news of the outside world. With such contact came new ideas, intermarriage, and new alliances. Montaillou was not a solidary village. Various factions competed within it for wealth and status.

Indeed, Chapter 7 shows this to be true even in reputedly solidary China (see also Freeman and Ruan 1997; Ruan et al. 1997). 3. Communities Have Moved Out of Neighborhoods to Be Dispersed Networks that Continue to Be Supportive and Sociable. As well as contemporary communities being fragmentary, sparsely knit and loosely bounded, they are rarely local groupings of neighbors and kin. The residents of developed societies usually know few neighbors, and most members of their personal communities do not live in the same neighborhood (Wellman 1990b, 1992c).

To the contrary: the larger and more inflexible the institutions, the more people seem to depend on their informal ties to deal with them. For example, Chapters 6 and 7 in this volume report that both people and organizations relied on informal ties to obtain resources in communist China and Hungary (see also Lin 1997; Lin, 10 Barry Wellman Ye, and Chen 1997). To go through channels would have been to wait forever. Sik and Wellman also show (Chapter 6) that another aspect of informal ties, their reliability, is important in hyperflexible, cash-poor, postcommunist Hungary.
