Abstract

Visiting assumes a major portion of time among the elite women in a small Turkish city. The paper analyzes one form of visiting, the kabul, which is based on the principle of balanced reciprocity. Four areas are investigated concerning the kabul: (1) the socio-historical position of this elite and the role of the kabul in (a) retaining the elite's cohesion, and (b) extending its power to other classes; (2) the method in which the principle of balanced reciprocity is used in the kabul to delineate primary, secondary and non-essential relationships; (3) a comparison of a middle class kabul pattern with that of an elite one; and (4) the position of the kabul as competing elites emerge in the city.
