This new volume from SEA illuminates the importance of gender as a frame of reference in the study of economic life. The contributors are economic anthropologists who consider the role of gender and work in a cross-cultural context, examining issues of: historical change, the construction of globalization, household authority and entitlement, and entrepreneurship and autonomy. The book will be a valuable resource for researchers in anthropology and in the related fields of economics, sociology of work, gender studies, women's studies, and economic development.

About the Author:

Gracia Clark is Associate Professor of Anthropology at Indiana University in Bloomington, and received her Ph.D. from Cambridge in social anthropology. She has worked with market traders in Kumasi, Ghana since 1978. She is the author of Onions are my Husband.

Review:

This is a very interesting and important collection of articles...what unites these papers and makes them particularly interesting is threefold: all question assumptions that have been made about gendered organization and work; all do more than simply point out those assumptions, providing a re-analysis in each particular area; and all firmly ground their analyses in concrete data. It is not only this last which sets them apart from recent cultural studies, but also the fact that they do not seem to sacrifice more perceptive and nuanced interpretations in the process...[the articles] all show that it is in fact possible to do sensitive research that is underpinned by data.All of them not only provide useful critiques of previous approaches, but also move the discipline forward by adding new analyses to it. (Susan A. Johnston, George Washington University Anthropological Quarterly, Vol. 77, No. 1, Winter 2004)
