beyond the in-
troductory stage, I felt fortunate indeed to find that the investigation by
John Photiadis of Stavroupolis in Macedonia had addressed itself to many
of the specific questions in which I had been interested.6 No one would
claim that all of his findings for one village in Northern Greece would auto-

only point to remember is that council members are not educated enough
to measure up to their tasks."
Some brief insight into how this process works is found in the case of
Stavroupolis, a village whose coffeehouses were treated at some length in
the preceding chapter. According to John Photiadis:
Stavroupolis and the three other villages which form the Stavroupolis com-
