Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
The Anthropology of Globalization provides an exciting introduction to global change, focusing simultaneously on the large-scale processes through which various cultures are becoming increasingly interconnected, and on the ways that people around the world mediate these processes in culturally specific ways. This new edition also addresses the limits of global mobility and connection.
Inda and Rosaldo have assembled some of the finest and newest work on globalization published in English by both established and emerging anthropologists, including Arjun Appadurai, Anna Tsing, Aihwa Ong, Didier Fassin, Sally Engle Merry, Tom Boellstorff, Karen Ho, and Andrew Lakoff. Beginning with a revised contribution by the editors, this second edition also includes new readings, helpful section introductions, and recommendations for further reading. Itprovides readers with a valuable resource on local and global processes that both promote and constrain movement and linkage.
