Globalisation : Studies in Anthropology
The essays show how the focus has shifted from traditional studies of specific sites, towards the movements and shifts associated with increasing migration and population flows - the result of living in an increasingly globalised world.
Written by a range of distinguished anthropologists, it offers innovative new approaches to the discipline in the light of these changes, making it indispensable as a teaching text, at higher levels, and as mandatory reading for practitioners and researchers in a wide range of merging disciplines.
Topics explored include the methodology of studying on the internet; global and spatial identities in the Caribbean; shifting boundaries in coastal communities; the anthropology of political life; issues of law and the flow of human substances; and the diffusion of moral values created by globalisation.
