Wade

Taking a comparative approach, this textbook is a concise introduction to race. Illustrated with detailed examples from around the world, it is organised into two parts. Part One explores the historical changes in ideas about race from the ancient world to the present day, in different corners of the globe. Part Two outlines the ways in which racial difference and inequality are perceived and enacted in selected regions of the world. Numerous case studies, photos, figures and tables help students to appreciate the different meaning of race in varied contexts. End-of-chapter research tasks provide further support for student learning.

Suitable for courses focusing on the study of race and ethnicity, this textbook leads students through the formal structures, historical movements and everyday manifestations of race.

Peter Wade is Professor of Social Anthropology at the University of Manchester.

How are children raised in different cultures? What is the role of children in society? How are families and communities structured around them? Now available in a revised edition, this book sets out to answer these questions, and argues that our common understandings about children are narrowly culture-bound. Enriched with anecdotes from ethnography and the daily media, the book examines family structure, reproduction, profiles of children’s caretakers within family or community, their treatment at different ages, their play, work, schooling, and transition to adulthood.

… it [is] possibly the only book that new parents will ‘ever need … Perhaps the most surprising thing about The Anthropology of Childhood was how it taught me to value things that, in a cross-cultural perspective, might suddenly seem arbitrary: how we approach hygiene, for example, or teach etiquette.

Reflecting upon the changing human condition, Palsson addresses various conflated zones of life at particular times and scales. Engaging with topical issues on the public agenda, from personal genomics to human-animal relations to

the global environment, the book sets out a compelling case for meaningful change. ‘The fruit of more than twenty years’ thought, this important collection of Gisli Palsson’s essays offers a sustained and invigorating inquiry into the politics, practices, logics, and varied anthropologies of life itself.

The Survival of Easter Island Dwindling Resources and Cultural Resilience Jan J. Boersema Universiteit Leiden

Translated by Diane Webb

In this book, Jan J. Boersema reconstructs the ecological and cultural history of Easter Island and critiques the hitherto accepted theory of its collapse. Drawing on historical and scientific evidence, Boersema demonstrates how Easter Island society responded to cultural and environmental change and how it was able to survive. ‘Jan J. Boersema’s study demonstrates once more the ‘collapse of the Easter Island society’, commonly advocated by Jared Diamond, to be a myth based on shaky scientific ground. To the contrary, the Rapa Nui people adapted to the challenges of isolation in a marginal environment with remarkable resilience. This book,

From Slavery to Aid Politics, Labour, and Ecology in the Nigerien Sahel, 1800–2000 Benedetta Rossi University of Birmingham

From Slavery to Aid takes two major themes of African historiography – the death of slavery and the birth of aid – and constructs a social history of the Ader region, an understudied region of the West African Sahel in today’s Republic of Niger. ‘Benedetta Rossi connects the specificities of place with the importance of connections across space, and she connects the continuities of a former slave society with the development initiatives of a colonial and post-colonial state. She uses her rich ethnographic and historical material to analyse insightfully the meaning of unequal social and economic relations, within a region, within an African state, and in relation to the external world.’ Frederick Cooper, New York University

Paper Tiger Law, Bureaucracy and the Developmental State in Himalayan India Nayanika Mathur University of Cambridge

Through a meticulous detailing of the everyday life of development bureaucracy on the Himalayan borderland, Paper Tiger shifts the frames of the debate on state failure and opens up a refreshingly new understanding of the workings of the contemporary Indian state. ‘This outstanding ethnography offers a rich glimpse of the workings of the state in a remote area of India. It shows that the problem of the implementation of law in India is less a problem of corruption or of neo-liberal governmentality and more a problem of the way in which the social life of paper produces a strange combination of affect and effect at the local level. Bureaucratic rule is created through the materiality of documents, letters and written texts which implement the state rather than the law, a paradox which explains both the omnipresence of the state and its limited effects on policy. This book will be of great interest to all students of the state, law and bureaucracy.’ Arjun Appadurai, New York University Cambridge Studies in Law and Society

Social, cultural anthropology The Politics of Heritage in Africa Economies, Histories, and Infrastructures Edited by Derek R. Peterson University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

Kodzo Gavua University of Ghana

and Ciraj Rassool University of the Western Cape, South Africa

This book draws together studies from history, archaeology, linguistics, the performing arts and cinema to show how the lifeways of the past were made into a store of authentic knowledge that political and cultural entrepreneurs could draw from – showing African heritage to be a mode of political organisation. ‘Precisely on the basis of the great variety of case studies presented, the volume attests to the complexity of any form of heritage politics. The ways in which such politics articulate the past with often direct present-day concerns goes well beyond the ‘mere’ problematic of the colonial archive. Yet even more, heritage politics is situated at the crossroads of fierce identity politics, nation-building, and commercialisation, and it speaks to memories of suffering and struggle often in terms that seem wanting to those who have lived through them. The present collection provides thought-provoking and fascinating perspectives that advance these concerns.’ Reinhart Kößler, Africa Spectrum

Slavery, Memory and Religion in Southeastern Ghana, c. 1850–Present Meera Venkatachalam

Slavery, Memory and Religion in Southeastern Ghana, c.1850–Present aims to reconstruct the religious history of the Anlo-Ewe peoples from the 1850s. In particular, it focuses on a corpus of cultic practices collectively known as ‘Fofie’, which derived their legitimacy from engaging with the memory of the slave-holding past. ‘Engaging, logically structured and based on impressive ethnography, this [book] makes an important contribution to the existing scholarly literature on the religion and belief of the Ewe people of Ghana and Togo and more broadly to an emerging history of religious change in West Africa that seeks to go beyond the established narrative of conversion.’ John Parker, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London The International African Library, 49

Social, cultural anthropology Zimbabwe’s Migrants and South Africa’s Border Farms The Roots of Impermanence Maxim Bolt University of Birmingham

Maxim Bolt explores the lives of Zimbabwean migrant labourers, of settled black farm workers and their dependants, and of white farmers and managers, as they intersect on the Zimbabwean-South African border. Focusing on one farm, the book investigates the role of a hub of wage labour in a place of crisis. ‘This closely attentive ethnography of a particular border farm in the new South Africa adds remarkable experiential and cultural depth to the understanding of migrant farm workers, as they manage and conceptualize work, time, money and relationships in their intimate lives, on and off the farm.’ Jane I. Guyer, The Johns Hopkins University The International African Library, 50

Pioneers of the Field South Africa’s Women Anthropologists Andrew Bank University of the Western Cape, South Africa

Tracing the personal and intellectual histories of six women anthropologists, this book will be welcomed by anthropologists, historians and students in African Studies interested in the

development of social anthropology in twentieth-century Africa, as well as by students and researchers in the field of Gender Studies. Advance praise: ‘Andrew Bank has made a major contribution to intellectual history in a volume that recognises the role played by six women anthropologists who were major contributors to the creation of a distinctive South African voice in anthropology: Winifred Hoernle, Audrey Richards, Monica Hunter Wilson, Hilda Beemer Kuper, Ellen Hellman and Eileen Jansen Krige. All, with the exception of Audrey Richards, were South African by birth. They were headed by Winifred Hoernle, founder of the anthropology department at the University of Witswatersrand. She was an inspiring teacher and mentor who encouraged her students to read widely, think deeply, and do superb ethnographic studies that focused on the contemporary world of Southern Africa with its reserves, farms, small towns and mining centres. Somehow these women have largely been forgotten by successors who owed them much but did not know it. This work celebrates their enduring contribution to the study of African life and the development of the anthropological discipline.’ Elizabeth Colson, University of California, Berkeley The International African Library, 51

Also of interest motherese. Botha elucidates, analyses and appraises this approach in detail. Advance praise: ‘In 2006, Rudie Botha launched an all out attack on the legitimacy of the claim that the South African archaeological site of Blombos had evidence of ‘fully syntactic’ language 75,000 years ago. No one has been able to counter the logic of his argument, and this book applies that same relentless, illuminating logic to other claims in the study of language origins. In doing so, Botha shows just how carefully any claims must be justified, and just how powerful his Windows Approach is.

This book offers a critical synthesis of the archaeology of South Asia from the Neolithic period (c.6500 BCE), when domestication began and permanent settlements were established across the subcontinent, to the spread of Buddhism which accompanied the reign of the Mauryan Emperor Asoka in the third century BCE. ‘This new and thorough survey of the vast Indian subcontinent, from before the first urban civilization of the Indus to the time of Ashoka and the Mauryan Empire in the third century BCE, brings to bear contemporary archaeological questions and methods in a perceptive way. It is a valuable introduction to one of the major fields of world archaeology.’ Colin Renfrew, McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, University of Cambridge Cambridge World Archaeology

Hardback

Should babies sleep alone in cribs, or in bed with parents? Is talking to babies useful, or a waste of time? A World of Babies provides different answers to these and countless other childrearing questions, precisely because diverse communities around the world hold drastically different beliefs about parenting. While celebrating that diversity, the book also explores the challenges that poverty, globalization and violence pose for parents. Fully updated for the twenty-first century, this edition features a new introduction and eight new or revised case studies that directly address contemporary parenting Advance Praise: challenges, from China and Peru to Israel and the West Bank. Written as imagined advice manuals to parents, the creative format of this book brings alive a rich body of knowledge that highlights many models of baby-rearing – each shaped by deeply held values and widely Christa Craven, The College of Wooster varying cultural contexts. Parenthood may never again seem a matter of ‘common sense’.

“A wonderful gift to new parents.”
