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.About the Author:
