Abstract [en]

It is commonly argued that if you study societies on the small scale level you tend to emphasise particularities and may fail to realise the importance of outside events for local development. The grand scenario, on the other hand, often tends to reduce social complexity in favour of deterministic and simple explanations as a driving force for particular events. This text stresses that no matter what preferences one might have concerning level of scale, going deeper into details is generally a rewarding and when using a bottom-up perspective, detailed small scale analysis may turn out to be as informative on the general level, as they may be on the particular.
