This chapter looks at the everyday life of the lower classes, mainly residing in rural areas as fellaheen, comparing it to the life of upper and middle classes and the Bedouin. It looks at the food they eat, the type of work they engage in, the role of women, and local affiliations and customs. It also examines poverty and how this affects marriage practices and the raising of children.
