The Ritual Process: Structure and Anti-Structure
This is one of Turner's earlier works. It is a collection of lectures and therefore less dense than other works. It is primarily a development of van Gennep's theory of liminality in rites of passage. Turner's big contribution is the idea that those who are in the process of a rite of passage and are therefore separated from the social structure and not yet integrated back into the social structure themselves constitute a community.
