Anthropology Of Our Times: An Edited Anthology In Public Anthropology

My new bookanthropologyofourtimes which features conversations with Didier Fassin, Angelique Haugerud, David H. Price, Richard Ashby Wilson, Claudio Lomnitz, Magnus Marsden, Ruben Andersson  and Parvis Ghassem-Fachandi, in addition to a foreword by Thomas Hylland Eriksen and an introduction by me will be out from Palgrave Macmillan on July 31 2017. Here is a selection of blurbs from  Profs Thomas Hylland Eriksen, Jonathan Spencer and Matti Bunzl.

“This sparkling collection combines two important tasks. On one hand, it advances arguments within anthropology as to how to bring our knowledge to bear on issues of pressing political importance. At the same time, it provides vivid case studies of the very best uses of anthropological methods to illuminate a range of issues. The result is a book that serves as an accessible introduction to anthropology’s unique insights, as well as a book to excite and stimulate students, teachers, and practitioners.” (Jonathan Spencer, School of Social and Political Science, University of Edinburgh, UK)
