Under the banner of corporate social responsibility (CSR), corporations have become increasingly important players in international development. These days, CSR’s union of economics and ethics is virtually unquestioned as an antidote to harsh neoliberal reforms and the delinquency of the state, but nothing is straightforward about this apparently win-win formula. Chronicling transnational mining corporation Anglo American’s pursuit of CSR, In Good Company explores what lies behind the movement’s marriage of moral imperative and market discipline.

Palestinian Village Gridlock Labor, Migration, Histories
Rochelle A. Davis
Palestinian Village Histories reveals how history is written, recorded, and contested, as well as the roles that Palestinian conceptions of their past play in contemporary life. Moving beyond the grand narratives of 20th century political struggles, this book analyzes individual and collective historical accounts of everyday life in pre-1948 Palestinian villages as composed today from the perspectives of these long-term refugees. “The study intertwines ethnography with anthropological theories, concluding with an examination of the role of memory in writing history . . . An added bonus to the book is the extensive bibliography that will serve the serious student well for further study.”

Geographies of the Displaced

and Human Trafficking in Dubai
Pardis Mahdavi
Legislators hoping to combat human trafficking focus heavily on women and sex work, but there is real potential for abuse of both male and female migrants in a variety of areas of employment—whether on the street, in a field, at a restaurant, or at someone’s house. Gridlock explores how migrants’ actual experiences in Dubai contrast with the typical discussions— and global moral panic—about human trafficking.

Power and Pottery in an Afghan Market Town
Noah Coburn
After the fall of the Taliban, instability reigned across Afghanistan. However, in the small town of Istalif, located a little over an hour north of Kabul and not far from Bagram on the Shomali Plain, local politics remained relatively violencefree. Bazaar Politics examines this seemingly paradoxical situation, exploring how the town’s local politics maintained peace despite a long, violent history in a country dealing with a growing insurgency.

Paradise Redefined

Vanessa L. Fong

Transnational Chinese Students and the Quest for Flexible Citizenship in the Developed World

In 2004, Vanessa Fong offered a groundbreaking ethnographic exploration of the social, economic, and psychological development of children born since China’s one-child policy was introduced in 1979. Her book Only Hope left readers with a picture of stressed, ambitious adolescents for whom elite status was the ultimate goal, though relatively few were in a position to achieve it. In Paradise Redefined, Fong tracks the experiences of many in her initial cohort of Chinese only-children—now college-age—as they study abroad in Australia, Europe, Japan, New Zealand, North America, and Singapore. While earning a prestigious college education in China is the main path to elite status, study abroad provides an alternative channel by offering a particularly flexible “developed world” citizenship. This flexible citizenship promises the potential for greater happiness and freedom afforded by transnational mobility, but also brings with it unexpected suffering, ambivalence, and disappointment. Paradise Redefined offers insights into China’s globalization by examining the expectations and experiences that affect how various Chinese students make decisions about studying abroad, staying abroad, immigration, and returning home.
“from Only Hope to Paradise Redefined, fong’s unique, longitudinal research offers an invaluable key to better understand the singleton generation in China who have come of age in the first decade of the 21st century, and will to a great extent determine the future of the most populous country on earth.”

Modern Anxieties in a Pacific Island Nation
Niko Besnier
This illuminating ethnography explores the malaise present in postcolonial Tonga, analyzing the way in which segments of this small-scale society hold on to different understandings of what modernity is, how it should be made relevant to local contexts, and how it should mesh with practices and symbols of tradition. “Ethnographically acute and open-eared, interpretively imaginative and principled, and always engaging, besnier’s book takes Tonga from ‘the edge’ to the center of new ways of thinking about ‘the global.’” “besnier’s study of Tonga as a nervous kaleidoscope—of make-up, make-over, bodybuilding, and the pawning and reselling of everyday things—is sharply observed and beautifully drawn. Clear, smart, witty, and touching.”
—Anne Allison, Duke University

Bakirathi Mani


While most people live far from the sites of oil production, oil politics involves us all. Resources for Reform explores how people’s lives intersect with the increasingly globalized and concentrated oil industry through a close look at Argentina’s experiment with privatizing its national oil company in the name of neoliberal reform. Examining Argentina’s conversion of its state-controlled oil market to a private market, Elana Shever reveals interconnections between large-scale transformations in society and small-scale shifts in everyday practice, intimate relationships, and identity. This engaging ethnography offers a window into the experiences of middle-class oil workers and their families, impoverished residents of shanty settlements bordering refineries, and affluent employees of transnational corporations as they struggle with rapid changes in the global economy, their country, and their lives. It reverberates far beyond the Argentine oil fields and offers a fresh approach to the critical study of neoliberalism, kinship, citizenship, and corporations. “Shever takes a critical look at the oil industry and the practices of oil companies like Shell— providing a clear, compelling exploration of the multiple sides of neoliberalism in Argentina. A major contribution.”

What does it mean to belong? At the turn of the 21st century, how are diasporic subjects fashioning identities and communities that bind them together in productive, multigenerational relationships? In Aspiring to Home, Bakirathi Mani examines these questions with a focus on immigrants from India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. Advancing a theory of locality—that is, the means through which highly diverse first- and second-generation immigrants, of varying regional, religious and linguistic backgrounds, experience what it means to belong— Mani showcases how ethnicity is produced through the intimate relationship between domestic racial formations and global movements of class and capital.

Civic Engagements

The Citizenship Practices of Indian and Vietnamese Immigrants

Caroline B. Brettell and Deborah Reed-Danahay

For refugees and immigrants in the United States, expressions of citizenship and belonging emerge not only during the naturalization process but also during more informal, everyday activities in the community. Based on research in the Dallas–Arlington–Fort Worth area of Texas, this book examines the sociocultural spaces in which Vietnamese and Indian immigrants are engaging with the wider civic sphere. As Civic Engagements reveals, religious and ethnic organizations provide arenas in which immigrants develop their own ways of being and becoming “American.” Skills honed at a meeting, festival, or banquet have resounding implications for the future political potential of these immigrant populations, both locally and nationally. Employing Lave and Wenger’s concept of “communities of practice” as a framework, this book emphasizes the variety of processes by which new citizens acquire the civic and leadership skills that help them to move from peripheral positions to more central roles in American society.
“A thoughtful and enlightening book based on detailed ethnographic research in one of America’s new immigrant gateways. Through wonderfully rich case studies and careful analysis, Civic Engagements provides important insights into how Vietnamese and Indian immigrants are learning to become American while also maintaining strong ethnic identities.”
—Nancy Foner, author of Across Generations: Immigrant Families in America

Andrew Bickford

The Military Other in Post-Unification Germany
Military officers are often the first to be considered politically dangerous when a state loses its authority. Overnight, actions once considered courageous are deemed criminal, and men once praised as heroes are redefined as villains. In Fallen Elites, Andrew Bickford examines how states make soldiers and what happens to fallen military elites when they no longer fit into the political spectrum.

Fallen Elites

“A graceful comparative look at two ‘new American’ communities. This book illustrates a crucial point about citizenship—that it is not to be measured simply by attainment of legal status but by engagement with others in activities that demonstrate belonging.”
—Karen Isaksen Leonard, University of California, Riverside

“bickford relates an exceptionally nuanced story of once powerful men with considerable humor and insight. Fallen Elites makes a brilliant contribution to our thinking about militarism and the military’s impact on social life. It has relevance well beyond the former East Germany and is a truly fascinating book.”

Political and Legal Anthropology

Security, Labor, and Policymaking in the European Union
Gregory Feldman
Every year, millions of people from around the world grapple with the European Union’s emerging migration management apparatus. Through border controls, biometric information technology, and circular migration programs, this amorphous system combines a whirlwind of disparate policies. The Migration Apparatus examines the daily practices of migration policy officials as they attempt to harmonize legal channels for labor migrants while simultaneously cracking down on illegal migration. “The Migration Apparatus will make major, cutting-edge contributions to several fields. both the specific arguments—for example, about how the concept of circular migration is easing tensions—and the general arguments—about how EU policy is made and works—are fresh and exciting.”
—Susan Greenhalgh, University of California, Irvine

The Migration Apparatus

After Secular Law
Edited by Winnifred Fallers Sullivan, Robert A. Yelle, and Mateo Taussig-Rubbo

Bringing together scholars with a variety of perspectives and orientations, this work examines the interconnections between law and religion and the unexpected histories and anthropologies of legal secularism in a globalizing modernity. “You will never again look at ‘secular’ law in the same way after reading this book. The topic of rethinking law and religion after the critique of secularity is important and timely, and this book reframes the entire debate through an ambitious, eclectic, and often brilliant series of interventions. It will be a benchmark in the many fields to which it contributes and is a major contribution to the study of law, religion, and politics.”

Silencing the Sea follows Palestinian poets’ debates about their craft as they traverse multiple and competing realities of secularism and religion, expulsion and occupation, art, politics, immortality, death, fame, and obscurity. Khaled Furani takes his reader down ancient roads and across military checkpoints to join the poets’ worlds and engage with the rhythms of their lifelong journeys in Islamic and Arabic history, language, and verse. This excursion offers newfound understandings of how today’s secular age goes far beyond doctrine, to inhabit our very senses, imbuing all that we see, hear, feel, and say.

Political and Legal Anthropology


introducing a new series

Anthropology of Policy
Cris Shore and Susan Wright
Advisory Board Donald Brenneis University of California, Santa Cruz Janine Wedel George Mason University Dvora Yanow University of Amsterdam A series edited by

Stanford Studies in Human Rights

The Anthropology of Policy series develops a new agenda for anthropology by promoting innovative methodological and theoretical approaches to the study of policy. The series explores policy as an anthropological phenomenon in its sharpest sense: from the way policies are conceptualised and performed and the roles they play in mobilizing actors and institutions and transforming political systems to the methodological challenges their study poses for anthropology itself. books in the series examine comparative and global issues in connection with local and regional processes. They also address themes of wider public debate, from neoliberalism, resource management, welfare reform, and poverty reduction measures to militarism, global security, the international financial crisis, and the construction of new regimes of governance and power. Coming from an anthropological perspective, the series challenges the assumption that policy is a top-down, linear, and rational process, and a field of study primarily for policy professionals. It analyses the contradictory nature and effects of policy, including the complex ways in which people engage with policy and the meanings it holds for different local, regional, national, and internationally based actors. In doing so, the series will advance anthropological understanding of contemporary political issues and of policy itself as a site of contestation and negotiation. for more information, including submission guidelines, visit www.sup.org/anthropolicy.

How Debt Bankrupts the Middle Class


Edited by Katherine Porter

About 1.5 million households filed bankruptcy in the last year, making bankruptcy as common as college graduation and divorce. The recession has pushed more and more families into financial collapse—with unemployment, declines in retirement wealth, and falling house values destabilizing the American middle class. Broke explores the consequences of this unprecedented growth in consumer debt and shows how excessive borrowing undermines the prosperity of middle class America. “Too many American families are deep in debt because their wages haven’t kept up, their jobs are vanishing, and their homes are worth less and less. It’s not only a human tragedy for them but also a national problem as their debt burden hobbles the American economy and their inability to repay cripples lenders. What should be done? Here’s a useful and insightful guide to policies that can help.”
