From the Back Cover:

The emerging complex dynamics that connect global and local processes have intensified—the world

has become, in many ways, a single place. Any history of applied anthropology is inextricably linked

to the history of the discipline as a whole, even in countries where relations between applied/

practicing and academic anthropologists have been contentious. Since the early 1990's, the pace of

globalization, with its new forms of linkages and communication, has been rapidly re-shaping the

discipline of anthropology here in the US as well as abroad. This volume presents original

information that allows a systematic comparison and contrast of applied/practicing anthropology

from a global perspective. Contributors from ten nations (Canada, China, Ecuador, Egypt, Great

Britain, India, Israel, Portugal, and Russia and the United States) discuss their perspectives as

practitioners and applied anthropologists. They describe the state of applied/practicing anthropology

in their countries, providing data for an analysis of the changing nature of anthropology on a

worldwide scale. The authors also represent diverse national perspectives about the goals, roles, and

statuses of anthropology in global change processes. The discussion presented in this Volume 25 of the

NAPA Bulletin series has important implications for the future of global applied/practice and presents

challenges to the organization and uses of the products of anthropological inquiry.
