In Money: Ethnographic Encounters, anthropologists tell stories of their experiences with money in the field.

Money: Ethnographic Encounters offers students, teachers and researchers the opportunity to consider the work of anthropology through vigorous narrative. It also includes a Guide to Further Reading for students. With stories of fieldwork in such varied sites as Vietnam, Ghana, China, and Malawi, Money: Ethnographic Encounters is ideal for all students of anthropology.
