Review:

“Anthropology is nothing unless also concerned with contemporary social and political questions. Edelman and Haugerud’s set of readings and wide–ranging, authoritative introduction will be indispensable to scholars and practitioners alike.”
Ralph Grillo, University of Sussex


“Enhanced by the editors’ knowledgeable introduction, which draws attention to anthropology’s silences as well as engagements with classical and contemporary political economy, this comprehensive anthology will be of great value to scholars, students, and practitioners.”
Sara Berry, Johns Hopkins University

“Certainly, it enriches our understanding of development by signalling the interdisciplinary sensibilities of development studies scholarship as well as the complex interplay of political economy, history and culture that shapes development processes.”
Development and Change

From the Back Cover:

Development ― is it a powerful vision of a better life for the half of the world’s population who subsist on two dollars a day? Or is it a failed Enlightenment legacy, an oppressive ′master narrative′? Such questions inspire a field newly animated by theories of globalization, modernity, cultural hybridity, and transnationalism. The Anthropology of Development and Globalization is a collection of readings that provides an unprecedented overview of this field that ranges from its classical origins to today’s debates about the ′magic′ of the free market.


The volume is framed by an encyclopedic introduction that will prove indispensable to students and experts alike. Subsequent readings range from classics by Weber and Marx and Engels to contemporary works on the politics of development knowledge, consumption, environment, gender, international NGO networks, the International Monetary Fund, campaigns to reform the World Bank, the collapse of socialism, and the limits of “post–developmentalism.” Explicitly designed for teaching, The Anthropology of Development and Globalization fills a crucial gap; no other available text so richly mingles historical, cultural, political, and economic perspectives on development and globalization, and none captures such a wide variety of theoretical approaches and topics as does this exciting collection.
