Review:

For the past fifty years June Nash has been consistently five or ten years ahead of her time. The topics on which she has made ground breaking interventions―feminist theory, local-global relations, ethnography of powerful institutions, consciousness and resistance, social movements, indigenous empowerment, militarization and empire, ethics and politics of research― document anthropology's major preoccupations since the 1950s. This volume offers a comprehensive record of Nash's achievements confirms her place as one of the most influential and accomplished anthropologists of our times. We are well advised to read closely, to appreciate how she has shaped our field, and to glean some clues about what is coming next. (Charles R. Hale, president, Latin American Studies Association (2006-07), University of Texas at Austin)

Practicing Anthropology in a Globalized Worldoffers students of anthropology and globalization a unique tour of the intellectual and political development of one of the most inspiring contemporary cultural anthropologists while also providing a world tour of social and cultural movements that have staked out interconnected terrains of resistance to U.S. Empire-building, global capital, and political and cultural forces of homogenization. Through in-depth essays that bring to life the contradictory politics of cultural and political economy in a transnational world, June Nash provides her readers with an insightful comparative collection that adds depth and breadth to the ethnography of globalization through time. (Lynn Stephen, University of Oregon)
