Tugging Rituals and Games: A Common Element, Diverse Approaches
Tugging Rituals and Games: A Common Element, Diverse Approaches is a result of joint projects between ICHCAP and ICH organizations and expert groups relevant to tug-of-war. This publication project was supported by Dangjin City and explores the diverse and similar features in tug-of-war practiced in seven countries—Cambodia, Japan, the Philippines, the Republic of Korea, Thailand, Ukraine, and Vietnam. This publication was organized and completed by gathering updated articles written by the authors from the represented countries who participated in symposiums and field work with ICHCAP. In addition, a Ukraine author, who was not a participant, also contributed, showing how areas outside of East and Southeast Asia have similar practices.
