“This is an impressive collection of essays that spans a huge array of themes, topics, writing styles and historical periods… The volume as a whole brings up lively conversations about a variety of themes in economic anthropology, and groups of the contributions can be used for class teaching on particular themes.” • Minh Nguyen, Bielefeld University
At a time of rising global economic precarity and social inequality, the field of economic anthropology offers solutions through the study of local and contextualized economic practices. This book is made up of an exciting collection of succinct essays authored by leading scholars primarily from the field of economic anthropology, but also featuring contributions from sociology and history. The chapters engage with debates at the cutting edge of research on the topics of Eurasia, the anthropology of postsocialism and the embeddedness of economic practices.
