Chongwei, Ma, Under the Swing: An Ethnography of an Akha Village in Northern Thailand. 260 pp. 2024:2 (P. Lang, SZ) <722-791>
ISBN 978-1-4331-7723-1 hard ¥24,926.- (税込) SFR 103.00

This book describes the development of immigrants in an Akha village in northern Thailand and discusses issues such as coffee economy, ethnic relations, religious beliefs and cultural changes. On the basis of in-depth analysis and understanding of the social structure and cultural logic of the villages in the region, the author points out that the local peoples in mountains have adapted the tension between tradition and modernity with their unique social and cultural logic and creatively integrated into modern society. When dealing with the relationship between the state and the local, the peoples do not always choose to escape from the rule. They often get more development opportunities by trying to participate in the process of nationalization.

Emanuel, Ryan, On the Swamp: Fighting for Indigenous Environmental Justice. 304 pp. 2024:4 (U. North Carolina Pr., US) <722-903>
ISBN 978-1-4696-7831-3 hard ¥21,344.- (税込) US$ 99.00
ISBN 978-1-4696-7832-0 paper ¥4,301.- (税込) US$ 19.95

Despite centuries of colonialism, Indigenous peoples still occupy parts of their ancestral homelands in what is now Eastern North Carolina-a patchwork quilt of forested swamps, sandy plains, and blackwater streams that spreads across the Coastal Plain between the Fall Line and the Atlantic Ocean. In these backwaters, Lumbees and other American Indians have adapted to a radically transformed world while maintaining vibrant cultures and powerful connections to land and water. This reality is paralleled in Indigenous communities worldwide as Indigenous people continue to assert their rights to self-determination by resisting legacies of colonialism and the continued transformation of their homelands through pollution, unsustainable development, and climate change. Environmental scientist Ryan Emanuel, a member of the Lumbee tribe, shares stories from North Carolina about Indigenous survival and resilience in the face of radical environmental changes. Addressing issues from the loss of wetlands to the arrival of gas pipelines, these stories connect the dots between historic patterns of Indigenous oppression and present-day efforts to promote environmental justice and Indigenous rights on the swamp. Emanuel's scientific insight and deeply personal connections to his home blend together in a book that is both a heartfelt and an analytical call to acknowledge and protect sacred places.

Dennison, Jean, Vital Relations: How the Osage Nation Moves Indigenous Nationhood into the Future. (Critical Indigeneities) 256 pp. 2024:4 (U. North Carolina Pr., US) <722-1072>
ISBN 978-1-4696-7696-8 hard ¥21,344.- (税込) US$ 99.00
ISBN 978-1-4696-7697-5 paper ¥6,457.- (税込) US$ 29.95

Relationality is a core principle of Indigenous studies, yet there is relatively little work that assesses what building relations looks like in practice, especially in the messy context of Native nations' governance. Focusing on the unique history and context of Osage nation building efforts, this insightful ethnography provides a deeper vision of the struggles Native nation leaders are currently facing. Exploring the Osage philosophy of moving to a new country as a framework for relational governance, Jean Dennison shows that for the Osage, nation building is an ongoing process of reworking colonial constraints to serve the nation's own ends. As Dennison argues, Osage officials have undertaken deliberate changes to strengthen Osage relations to their language, self-governance, health, and land-core needs for a people to thrive now and into the future. Scholars and future Indigenous leaders can learn from the Osage Nation's past challenges, strategies, and ongoing commitments to better enact the difficult work of Indigenous nation building.

Ray, Celeste / McCormick, Finbar (eds.), Holy Wells of Ireland: Sacred Realms and Popular Domains. (Irish Culture, Memory, Place) 448 pp. 2023:9 (Indiana U. Pr., US) <722-1074>
ISBN 978-0-253-06668-8 hard ¥10,780.- (税込) US$ 50.00

The verdant landscape of Ireland is dotted with holy wells-small springs, pools, and ponds that hold spiritual and often curative meaning to locals. Sadly, many of these sites have been lost to development, despite being associated with daily devotions and indigenous saints never canonized by the Catholic Church. To celebrate and protect the wells that remain, Holy Wells of Ireland examines these irreplaceable resources of spiritual, archaeological, and historical significance. Of the roughly 3,000 holy wells documented across Ireland, about a third are still visited; some attract international pilgrims and others are stewarded by a single family. This sense of spiritual tradition draws younger Irish generations to the wells even when they no longer consider themselves practicing Catholics. Holy wells are also home to flora and fauna deemed sacred to their patron saint and instrumental in their waters' curative powers. Featuring 140 color images, this remarkable volume shares the interdisciplinary work of contributors who study these wells through the overlapping lenses of anthropology, archaeology, art history, biomedicine, folklore, geography, history, and hydrology.Braiding community perspectives with those of scholars across academia, Holy Wells of Ireland considers Irish holy wells as a resilient feature of ever-evolving Irish Christianity, as places of pilgrimage and healing, and as threatened biocultural resources.

Simms, Steven R, First Peoples of Great Salt Lake: A Cultural Landscape from Nevada to Wyoming. (Utah Series on Great Salt Lake and the Great Basin) 242 pp. 2023:11 (U. Utah Pr., US) <722-1075>
ISBN 978-1-64769-147-9 hard ¥17,248.- (税込) US$ 80.00
ISBN 978-1-64769-137-0 paper ¥7,535.- (税込) US$ 34.95

Great Salt Lake is a celebrated, world-recognized natural landmark. It, and the broader region bound to it, is also a thoroughly cultural landscape; generations of peoples made their lives there. In an eminently readable narrative, Steven Simms, one of the foremost archaeologists of the region, traces the scope of human history dating from the Pleistocene, when First Peoples interacted with the lapping waters of Lake Bonneville, to nearly the present day. Through vivid descriptions of how people lived, migrated, and mingled, with persistence and resilience, Simms honors the long human presence on the landscape. First Peoples of Great Salt Lake takes a different approach to understanding the ancients than is typical of archaeology. Deemphasizing categories and labels, it traces changing environments, climates, and peoples through the notion of place. It challenges the Pristine Myth, the cultural bias that Indigenous peoples were timeless, changeless, primitive, and the landscapes they lived in sparsely populated. First Peoples and their descendants modified the forests and understory vegetation, shaped wildlife populations, and adapted to long-term climate change. Native Americans of Great Salt Lake were very much part of their world, and the story here is one of long continuity through dramatic cultural change.

Augustin-Jean, Louis (ed.), An Autopsy of Ethnographic Fieldwork: An Introspective Look into Qualitative Research Experiences. 264 pp. 2024:7 (Routledge, UK) <721-8>
ISBN 978-1-03-244107-8 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

This edited volume presents an international collection of fieldwork experiences from every stage of the research process with a view to normalising the process of adaptation, modification, and even failure during the fieldwork process when circumstances interrupt the expected outcomes.This book aims to address a gap often found in methodology books by including nine full autopsy-like reflection of fieldwork experiences, selected based on researchers' fields and experience, the diversity of geographical locations and their differing themes. Its chapters record a swathe of experience, from choosing the research themes and hypotheses through to academic presentations and publications, shedding light on an area of experience that is often overlooked.Documenting experience from anthropologists and sociologists to political scientists and economists, the diversity of the book's approach and its multidisciplinary focus will interest researchers, scholars, and postgraduate students from a range of subdisciplines and levels of fieldwork experience within research methodology.

Corporaal, Marguerite / de Zwarte, Ingrid (eds.), Famines and the Making of Heritage. 296 pp. 2024:6 (Routledge, UK) <721-909>
ISBN 978-1-03-250015-7 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00
ISBN 978-1-03-248934-6 paper ¥10,015.- (税込) GB£ 35.99

This volume is the first book to bring together ground-breaking research on the role of European famines in the 19th and 20th centuries in relation to heritage making, museology, commemoration, education and monument creation.The presence of these famine pasts continues to be felt in the immediate present: in traditional and social media, museums, and class rooms, as well as through monuments and activities surrounding commemorations. Furthermore, these European famines have often been politicised in public debates, such as those regarding the recent economic crisis, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and refugee crisis, or the current war instigated by Russia in Ukraine. The book chapters, written by famine experts from across Europe and North America, adopt a pioneering transnational perspective, and discuss issues such as contestable and repressed heritage, materiality, dark tourism, education on famines, oral history, multidirectional memory, and visceral empathy. Questions that are addressed include: why are educational curricula and practices in schools and on heritage sites region- or nation-oriented or transnational, and do they emphasise conflict or mutual understanding? How do present issues of European concern - such as globalisation, commodification, human rights, poverty and migration - intersect with the heritage and memory of modern European famines? What role do emigrant and diasporic communities within and outside Europe play in the development of famine heritage and educational practices? And to what extent is famine heritage accessible to and involving immigrants from outside Europe? The collection is thematically arranged according to three strands: education, the representation of European famines in monuments as well as their function in commemoration practices, and how these famines are depicted in museums.This volume provides a crucial resource for museum and heritage professionals, scholars and students working on difficult or dark heritages, as well as those interested in the study of famines and legacies of troubled pasts in a more general sense. It will also be of interest to those working on modern Europe from the perspective of Memory Studies, Educational Studies, History, Literature, and Cultural Studies.

Fixico, Donald L., Being Indian and Walking Proud: American Indian Identity and Reality. 256 pp. 2024:7 (Routledge, UK) <721-910>
ISBN 978-1-03-276386-6 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00
ISBN 978-1-03-274054-6 paper ¥10,015.- (税込) GB£ 35.99

This book explores the identity of American Indians from an Indigenous perspective and how outside influences throughout history, from the arrival of Columbus in 1492 to the twenty-first century, have affected Native people. Non-Native writers, boarding school teachers, movie directors, bureaucrats, churches, and television have all heavily impacted how Indians are viewed in the United States. Drawing on the life experiences of many American Indian men and women, this volume reveals how American Indian identity comprises multiple identities, including the noble savage, wild savage, Hollywood Indian, church going Indian, rez Indian, urban Indian, Native woman, Indian activist, casino Indian, and tribal leader. Indigenous people, in their own voices, share their experiences of discrimination, being treated as outsiders in their own country, and the intersections of gender, culture, and politics in Indian-white relations. Yet the book also highlights the resilience of being Indian and the pride felt from being a member of a tribe(s), knowing your relatives, and feeling connected to the earth.Being Indian and Walking Proud is a compelling resource for any reader interested in Indigenous history, including students and scholars in Native American and Indigenous studies, anthropology, and American history.

Milenkovic, Milos, Intangible Cultural Heritage and Reconciliation in the Western Balkans: An Anthropological perspective. (Southeast European Studies) 264 pp. 2024:8 (Routledge, UK) <721-912>
ISBN 978-1-03-273246-6 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

This book considers the sensitive heritage elements linked to the very issue of the origins of nations. Beliefs, rituals, and traditional knowledge are examples of intangible cultural heritage (ICH), which communities globally regard as the core of their cultural identity. When it is unclear which element of heritage 'belong' to whom, like in the Western Balkans, where majority of heritage elements is shared, ICH disputes exacerbate conflict. Its mishandling is especially acute when minority heritage is excluded from governmental cultural policies. With a focus on Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Montenegro, this book has a global thematic scope, theoretical depth, and policy relevance to anthropology and heritage studies scholars, as well as those interested in cultural diversity, human rights, and cultural and educational policies. It will serve as a guide for those who professionally use cultural heritage, or want to start doing so, in the processes of reconciliation, stabilization and development.

Smith-Morris, Carolyn / Abadia, Cesar E. (eds.), Countering Modernity: Communal and Cooperative Models from Indigenous Peoples. 240 pp. 2024:7 (Routledge, UK) <721-915>
ISBN 978-1-03-269804-5 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

This volume highlights and examines how Indigenous Peoples continue to inhabit the world in counter-modern ways. It illustrates how communalist practices and cooperative priorities of many Indigenous communities are simultaneously key to their cultural survival while being most vulnerable to post-colonial erasure. Chapters contributed by community collectives, elders, lawyers, scholars, multi-generational collaboratives, and others are brought together to highlight the communal and cooperative strategies that counter the modernizing tropes of capitalist, industrialist, and representational hegemonies. Furthermore, the authors of the book explicitly interrogate the roles of witness, collaborator, advocate, and community leader as they consider ethical relations in contexts of financialized global markets, ongoing land grabbing and displacement, epistemic violence, and post-colonial erasures. Lucid and topical, the book will be indispensable for students and scholars of anthropology, modernity, capitalism, history, sociology, human rights, minority studies, indigenous studies, Asian studies, and Latin American studies.

Kalyva, Eve / Katsaridou, Iro / Bianchi, Pamela (eds.), Museums and Entrepreneurship: The Effects of Capitalising on Culture in the 21st Century. 224 pp. 2024:7 (Routledge, UK) <721-235>
ISBN 978-1-03-246369-8 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

Museums and Entrepreneurship: The Effects of Capitalising on Culture in the 21st Century addresses the largely under-examined impact that different entrepreneurial endeavours have on museum practices today.It identifies an entrepreneurial turn in today's neoliberal context, and critically evaluates how this turn redefines museums in organisational, conceptual and empirical terms. It assesses the challenges that different types of museums face, examining how they are conceptualised, managed and experienced in order to remain financially viable while also remaining relevant to the communities they should serve. It brings to the fore the dynamic relationships formed across corporate sponsors, private collectors, cultural administrators and local communities that shape today's museum practices in a global context. Evidence-based in its approach and with case studies from Europe, the USA, South America and China, this volume engages with entrepreneurship across theory and practice, and combines perspectives from museum studies, curating, exhibition design, business and management.Shedding new light on discussions around cultural branding, sponsorship, the politics of display and experience economy, and highlighting the importance of resilience, decolonisation and social responsibility, Museums and Entrepreneurship is essential reading for students and researchers in museum and heritage studies, curatorial studies, arts and heritage management, and business.

Xu, Jing, Unruly' Children: Historical Fieldnotes and Learning Morality in a Taiwan Village. (New Departures in Anthropology) 290 pp. 2024:7 (Cambridge U. Pr., UK) <720-658>
ISBN 978-1-00-941627-6 hard ¥19,481.- (税込) GB£ 70.00
ISBN 978-1-00-941625-2 paper ¥6,397.- (税込) GB£ 22.99

How do we become moral persons? What about children's active learning in contrast to parenting? What can children teach us about knowledge-making more broadly? Answer these questions by delving into the groundbreaking ethnographic fieldwork conducted by anthropologists Arthur and Margery Wolf in a martial law era Taiwanese village (1958-60), marking the first-ever study of ethnic Han children. Jing Xu skillfully reinterprets the Wolfs' extensive fieldnotes, employing a unique blend of humanistic interpretation, natural language processing, and machine-learning techniques. Through a lens of social cognition, this book unravels the complexities of children's moral growth, exposing instances of disobedience, negotiation, and peer dynamics. Writing through and about fieldnotes, the author connects the two themes, learning morality and making ethnography, in light of social cognition, and invites all of us to take children seriously. This book is ideal for graduate and undergraduate students of anthropology and educational studies.

Mitchell, Peter, The Archaeology of Southern Africa. 2nd ed. (Cambridge World Archaeology) 644 pp. 2024:6 (Cambridge U. Pr., UK) <720-721>
ISBN 978-1-00-932473-1 hard ¥29,221.- (税込) GB£ 105.00
ISBN 978-1-00-932475-5 paper ¥9,737.- (税込) GB£ 34.99

Some of humanity's earliest ancestors lived in Southern Africa, and evidence from sites there has inspired key debates on human origins and the emergence of complex cognition. Building on its rich rock art heritage, archaeologists have developed theoretical work that continues to influence rock art studies worldwide, with the relationship between archaeological and anthropological data central to understanding past hunter-gatherer, pastoralist, and farmer communities alike. New work on pre-colonial states contests models that previously explained their emergence via external trade, while the transformations wrought by European colonialism are being rewritten to emphasise Indigenous agency, feeding into efforts to decolonise the discipline itself. Inhabited by humans longer than almost anywhere else and with an unusually varied, complex past, Southern Africa thus has much to contribute to archaeology worldwide. In this revised and updated edition, Peter Mitchell provides a comprehensive and extensively illustrated synthesis of its archaeology over more than three million years.

Peterson, Kristin / Olson, Valerie, The Ethnographer's Way: A Handbook for Multidimensional Research Design. 376 pp. 2024:4 (Duke U. Pr., US) <720-8>
ISBN 978-1-4780-2590-0 hard ¥23,705.- (税込) US$ 109.95
ISBN 978-1-4780-3015-7 paper ¥6,457.- (税込) US$ 29.95

The Ethnographer's Way guides researchers through the exciting process of turning an initial idea into an in-depth research project. Kristin Peterson and Valerie Olson introduce "multidimensioning," a method for planning projects that invites scholars to examine their research interests from all angles. Researchers learn to integrate seemingly disparate groups, processes, sites, and things into a unified conceptual framework. The handbook's ten modules walk readers step-by-step, from the initial lightbulb moment to constructing research descriptions, planning data gathering, writing grant and dissertation proposals, and preparing for fieldwork. Designed for ethnographers and those working across disciplines, these modules provide examples of multidimensional research projects with exercises readers can utilize to formulate their own projects. The authors incorporate group work into each module to break the isolation common in academic project design. In so doing, Peterson and Olson's handbook provides essential support and guidance for researchers working at all levels and stages of a project.

Mugler, Johanna / Sheild Johansson, M. / Smith, R. (eds.), Anthropology and Tax: Ethnographies of Fiscal Relations. 354 pp. 2024:7 (Cambridge U. Pr., UK) <720-441>
ISBN 978-1-00-925458-8 hard ¥29,221.- (税込) GB£ 105.00

From the perspective of individual taxpayers to international tax norm negotiators, the anthropologists in this collection explore how taxes shape our world: our social relationships and value regimes, how we exclude and include, the categories we think with, and the way we share with each other. A first of its kind, it presents an anthropological discussion about tax rooted in ethnographic work. It asks fundamental questions such as: what is tax, what is taxable, and what do taxes do? By forwarding multiple perspectives from around the world about fiscal systems and how they are experienced and constituted, Anthropology and Tax reconceptualises tax in society. In doing so, this volume makes an incisive intervention in what might be one of the most important debates of our time - that of fiscal sociality. This title is also available as Open Access on Cambridge Core.

21世紀の東京におけるギャンブル、尊厳、日雇い労働者
Hammering, Klaus K. Y., Perilous Wagers: Gambling, Dignity, and Day Laborers in Twenty-First-Century Tokyo. (Studies of the Weatherhead East Asian Institute, Columbia University) 288 pp. 2024:8 (Cornell U. Pr., US) <720-206>
ISBN 978-1-5017-7641-0 hard ¥28,028.- (税込) US$ 130.00
ISBN 978-1-5017-7642-7 paper ¥7,535.- (税込) US$ 34.95

The lives of the men depicted in Perilous Wagers take place in the squalor of Tokyo's old day-laborer district, San'ya, where they can be found eking out a living from occasional construction work and welfare handouts, permanently displaced from their hometowns to metropolitan Tokyo. Although San'ya has nearly vanished during the past twenty years, its import persists as a black market where its small population of male day-laborers can be contracted for the most undesirable of tasks, without consideration for their health or safety. In this context, Hammering's book examines classic ethnographic themes of labor, exchange, value, honor, shame, temporality, desire, gender, and personhood. It explores how one group of day-laborers embodied a transgressive masculinity intimately intertwined with honorable mobster values of old, and how they created dignity and sociality under abject conditions of life. Perilous Wagers tracks these underdog values across construction sites, non-profit organizations, hospitals, bunkhouses, and illegal gambling dens, giving imaginative life to a stigmatized, forgotten social world.

Bandak, Andreas / Knight, Daniel M. (eds.), Porous Becomings: Anthropological Engagements with Michel Serres. 344 pp. 2024:3 (Duke U. Pr., US) <720-25>
ISBN 978-1-4780-2605-1 hard ¥23,705.- (税込) US$ 109.95

One of the foremost intellectuals of his generation, French philosopher of science Michel Serres (1930-2019) broke free from disciplinary dogmas. His reflections on science, culture, technology, art, and religion have proved foundational to scholars across the humanities. The contributors to Porous Becomings bring the inspirational and enigmatic world of Serres to the attention of anthropology. Through ethnographic encounters as diverse as angels and religious conversion in Ethiopia, the percolation of war in Bosnia, and incarcerated bodies crossing the Atlantic, the contributors showcase how Serres's interrogation of the fundamentals of human existence opens new pathways for anthropological knowledge. Proposing the notion of "porosity" to characterize permeability across boundaries of time, space, literary genre, and academic discipline, they draw on Serres to map the constellations that connect humans, time, technology, and planet Earth. The volume concludes with a conversation between the editors and Vibrant Matter author Jane Bennett. Contributors. Andreas Bandak, Jane Bennett, Tom Boylston, Steven D. Brown, Matei Candea, Alberto Corsin Jimenez, David Henig, Michael Jackson, Daniel M. Knight, Celia Lowe, Morten Nielsen, Stavroula Pipyrou, Elizabeth Povinelli, Andrew Shryock, Arpad Szakolczai

Halvaksz, Jamon Alex, II / Bell, Joshua A. (eds.), Naturalist Histories: Making Nature, Knowledge, and People in Oceania. 277 pp. 2024:3 (U. Hawai'i Pr., US) <719-893>
ISBN 978-0-8248-8789-6 hard ¥14,660.- (税込) US$ 68.00

From early explorers to contemporary scientists, naturalists have examined island flora and fauna of Oceania, discovering new species, carefully documenting the lives of animals, and creating work central to the image of Oceania. These "discoveries" and exploratory moves have had profound local and global impacts. Often, however, local knowledge and communities are silent in the ethologies and histories that naturalists produce. This volume analyzes the ways that Indigenous and non-Indigenous naturalists have made island natures visible to a wider audience, their relationship with the communities where they work, as well as the unique natures that they explore and help make. In staking out an area of naturalist histories, each contributor addresses the relationship between naturalists and Oceanic communities, how these histories shaped past and present place and practices, the influence on conservations and development projects, and the relationship between scientific and indigenous knowledge. The essays span across colonial and postcolonial frames, tracing shifts in biological practice from the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century focus on taxonomy and discovery to the twentieth-century disciplinary restructurings and new collecting strategies, and contemporary concerns with biodiversity loss, conservation, and knowledge formation.The production of scientific knowledge is typically seen in ethnographic accounts as oppositional, contrasting Indigenous and western, local and global, objective and subjective. Such dichotomous views reinforce differences and further exaggerate inequities in the production of knowledge. More dangerously, value distinctions become embedded in discussions of Indigenous identity, rights, and sovereignty. Contributors acknowledge that these dichotomous narratives have dominated the approach of the scientific community while informing how social scientists have understood the contributions of Pacific communities. The essays offer a nuanced gradient as historical narratives of scientific investigation, in dialogue with local histories, and reveal greater levels of participation in the creation of knowledge. The volume highlights how power infuses the scientific endeavor and offers a distinct and diverse view of knowledge production in Oceania. Combining senior and emerging international scholars, the collection will be of interest to researchers in the social sciences, history, as well as biology and allied fields.

Foblets, Marie-Claire / Sapignoli, M. / Donahoe, B. (eds.), Anthropological Expertise and Legal Practice: In Conversation. (Law and Anthropology) 272 pp. 2024:6 (Routledge, UK) <719-423>
ISBN 978-0-367-54066-1 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

This book draws on concrete cases of collaboration between anthropologists and legal practitioners to critically assess the use of anthropological expertise in a variety of legal contexts from the point of view of the anthropologist as well as of the decision maker or legal practitioner. The contributions, several of which are co-authored by anthropologist-legal practitioner tandems, deal with the roles of and relationships between anthropologists and legal professionals, which are often collaborative, interdisciplinary, and complementary. Such interactions go far beyond courts and litigation, into areas of law that might be called 'social justice activism'. They also entail close collaboration with the people - often subjects of violence and dispossession - with whom the anthropologists and legal practitioners are working. The aim of this collection is to draw on past experiences to come up with practical methodological suggestions for facilitating this interaction and collaboration and for enhancing the efficacy of the use of anthropological expertise in legal contexts. Explicitly designed to bridge the gap between theory and practice, and between scholarship and practical application, the book will appeal to scholars and researchers engaged in anthropology, legal anthropology, socio-legal studies, and asylum and migration law. It will also be of interest to legal practitioners and applied social scientists, who can glean valuable lessons regarding the challenges and rewards of genuine collaboration between legal practitioners and social scientists.

Margaria, Alice / Vetters, Larissa (eds.), Leading Works in Law and Anthropology. (Analysing Leading Works in Law) 264 pp. 2024:6 (Routledge, UK) <719-428>
ISBN 978-1-03-211853-6 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

The academic disciplines of law and sociocultural anthropology have a long but at times contentious history of drawing on each other in order to study and understand law and human experience in its diverse manifestations. This volume provides an innovative and engaging format by giving established and emerging scholars from diverse jurisdictions the opportunity to discuss and reflect upon what they consider to be a 'leading work'. The collection offers a unique, multi-perspectival reconsideration of the intellectual history of the field whilst also addressing issues that are at the core of interdisciplinary legal research. Contributions shed light on the changing nature of cross-disciplinary research and collaboration, trace how disciplinary understandings of normativity have cross-fertilized each other, and reflect on choices taken within research on law and anthropology along a continuum of theoretical reflection, critique, engagement and practical application. The book elaborates on the nature and the boundaries of law and anthropology research, as well as on its likely future development in light of the insights shared by contributors on their chosen leading works. The book will make fascinating reading for researchers and academics in both law and anthropology.

ISBN 978-1-03-213949-4 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

Innovation is a constant in human life and organization, arising from within a context-based culture of social structures and beliefs. This book re-examines the processes, practices, and mechanisms of innovation from an anthropological perspective, offering a theory of innovation as a dynamic multidimensional system. It uses methods and stories across a broad arc of time, place, social and cultural context and subject matter. The chapters explore the intersection of virtual, local, global dynamics and deepen our understanding of aspects and dimensions of innovation that challenge common perceptions, particularly in business and organizational environments. The approach aims to situate innovation in an integrated view of human and non-human ecologies, and to create common ground for a new form of research and practice.

Lecomte-Tilouine, Marie / de Sales, Anne (eds.), Encounters with the Invisible: Revisiting Spirit Possession in the Himalayas. 300 pp. 2024:6 (Routledge, UK) <719-152>
ISBN 978-1-03-238561-7 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00
ISBN 978-1-03-279194-4 paper ¥10,015.- (税込) GB£ 35.99

This volume considers spirit possession in the Himalayas and the various ways in which invisible powers are made present. It does so by examining material representations of these powers through artefacts, animals, plants and natural substances, while also focusing on narratives of people's encounters with the invisible that may help them to reconfigure reality. Through these two approaches, the contributions examine new phenomena associated with the concepts of "possession" and "shamanism", which otherwise tend to lead research into well-worn furrows. The book addresses a range of themes, including the gods of the Western Himalayas, death and ritual dissolution among Hyolmo Buddhists in Nepal, gods and rivers as legal persons in India, and the problem of conversion disorder in Nepal.Rich in ethnography, this book will be indispensable for scholars and researchers of anthropology, religion, spiritualism, sociology of religion, Himalayan studies, sociology and South Asia.

気候変動の批判的人類学の構築
Baer, Hans A. / Singer, Merrill, Building the Critical Anthropology of Climate Change: Towards a Socio-Ecological Revolution. (Routledge Environmental Anthropology) 288 pp. 2024:6 (Routledge, UK) <719-1003>
ISBN 978-1-03-274577-0 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00
ISBN 978-1-03-274576-3 paper ¥10,015.- (税込) GB£ 35.99

This book applies a critical perspective to anthropogenic climate change and the global socio-ecological crisis. The book focuses on the critical anthropology of climate change by opening up a dialogue with the two main contending perspectives in the anthropology of climate change, namely cultural ecological perspective on climate change and the cultural interpretive perspective on climate change. Guided by these perspectives, the book takes a firm stance on the types of changes that are needed to sustain life on Earth as we know it. Within this framework, it explores issues of climate and social equity, the nature of the current era of Earth's geohistory, the perspectives of the elite polluters driving climate change, and the regrettable contributions of anthropologists and other scholars to climate change. The book also engages with the sociology, political science and geography of climate change; by exploring these various approaches to thinking about and responding to the existential threat of an ever warming climate, the authors lay the foundation for a brave new sustainable world that is socially just, highly democratic, and climatically-safe for humans and other species. This book will be of interest to researchers and students in Environmental Anthropology, Climate Change, Human Geography, Sociology, and Political Science.

ISBN 978-0-367-71025-5 hard ¥32,004.- (税込) GB£ 115.00

This book explores how the landscapes in indigenous territories are rapidly changing due to increased global industrial demand. This deforestation and urbanization has isolated the Indigenous People from practising 'traditional ways of life.' Portrayed in the book are the Indigenous People's perspective of their Indigenous Knowledge about the enviornment, and why losing IK is a threat to humans, wildlife and nature. Insight is shared into why acknowledging IK as a science can help solve climate change, food and nutrition insecurity and increasing new types of pandemic, through evidence-based stories from Indigenous people.Features:Bridges the fractured space between science and nature. Documents the perspectives of Indigenous Peoples about their ancestral knowledge. Provides ethnographic qualitative case studies of forest-dwelling Indigenous Peoples over a 19 year period. Covers largely remote indigenous territories of ten tropical countries in the global south.

O'Neill, Bruce, Underground: Dreams and Degradations in Bucharest. (The City in the Twenty-First Century) 272 pp. 2024:5 (U. Pennsylvania Pr., US) <719-1042>
ISBN 978-1-5128-2582-4 hard ¥25,872.- (税込) US$ 120.00
ISBN 978-1-5128-2583-1 paper ¥6,457.- (税込) US$ 29.95

This book gets to the bottom of the twenty-first-century city, literally. Underground moves beneath Romania's capital, Bucharest, to examine how the demands of global accumulation have extended urban life not just upward into higher skylines, and outward to ever more distant peripheries, but also downward beneath city sidewalks. Underground details how developers and municipal officials have invested tremendous sums of money to gentrify and expand Bucharest's constellation of subterranean Metro stations and pedestrian pathways, basements and cellars, bunkers and crypts to provide upwardly mobile residents with space to live, work, and play in an overcrowded and increasingly unaffordable city center. In this sense, the repurposed underground facilitates dreams of middle-class ascendancy. This sense of optimism, the book shows, invariably gives way to ambivalence as the middle classes confront the indignities of being incorporated into the city from below. Bruce O'Neill argues that these loosely coordinated efforts have not only introduced novel forms of social fragmentation but also a new aesthetics of inequality that are fundamentally shaping where and how the middle classes fit in the city. Pushing urban studies beyond a cartographic perspective-with its horizontal focus upon centers and peripheries, walls and gates-O'Neill brings into focus the vertical dynamics of gentrification that place some "on the bottom" and others "on top" of the city. As cities around the world extend further downward in the name of development and sustainability, Underground makes clear that scholars and practitioners of the twenty-first-century city will need to become ever more attuned to the cultural politics of urban verticality, asking not just who is included in the city and who has been pressed outside of it, but also who is on top and who is placed on the bottom.

現代社会科学・人文科学におけるB.マリノフスキとその遺産
Kubica, Grazyna / Brzezinski, Dariusz (eds.), Bronislaw Malinowski and His Legacy in Contemporary Social Sciences and Humanities: On the Centenary of Argonauts of the Western Pacific. (Classical and Contemporary Social Theory) 304 pp. 2024:6 (Routledge, UK) <719-1048>
ISBN 978-1-03-258365-5 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

As one of the most renowned figures in the history of anthropology, Bronislaw Malinowski is recognised as having been central to the development of the discipline, with interpretations of his thought usually drawing attention to his work in founding the approach of functionalism and his innovative method of intensive field research. This book offers a decisive extension of Malinowski's achievement, referring to the accomplishments of present-day social sciences and humanities and the debts that they owe to Malinowksi's oeuvre.Bringing together eminent scholars in such fields as social anthropology, sociology, law, cultural studies, literary and theatre studies, and art history, this book emphasises the importance of Malinowski's theoretical and methodological insights as a treasure trove of inspiration for contemporary researchers.A critical commentary on the life, work and legacy of Bronislaw Malinowski, it sheds light on his academic work, while personal documents, many of which are not well known - or are completely unknown - in the Anglophone sphere, prove their fundamental importance for understanding his oeuvre, and the intellectual connections between his work and the work of other most prominent intellectuals of the 20th and 21st centuries. It will therefore appeal to scholars across the social sciences and humanities with interests in the history of anthropology and sociology and fundamental questions of theory and research methodology.

Alimardanian, Mahnaz / Heffernan, Timothy (eds.), The Anthropology of Ambiguity: Theory, Praxis and Critique. 264 pp. 2024:5 (Manchester U. Pr., UK) <719-1148>
ISBN 978-1-5261-7384-3 hard ¥25,047.- (税込) GB£ 90.00

This volume puts ambiguity and its generative power at the centre of analytical attention. Rather than being cast negatively as a source of confusion, bewilderment or as a dangerous portent, ambiguity is held as the source of the dynamic between knowledge and experience and of certainty amid uncertainty. It positions human life between the realms of mystery and mastery where ambiguity is understood as the experience and expression of life and part of navigating the human condition. In turn, the tension between the tradition in anthropology of examining cultural certitudes through ethnographic description and efforts to challenge dominant expressions of incertitude are explored. Each chapter presents ethnographic accounts of how people engage individually and collectively with the self, the other, human-made institutions and the more-than-human to navigate ambiguity in a world affected by viral contagion, climate change, economic instability, labour precarity and (geo)political tension.

リミナリティを超えて
Eller, Jack David, Beyond Liminality: Ontologies of Abundant Betweenness. 232 pp. 2024:7 (Routledge, UK) <719-1151>
ISBN 978-1-03-273383-8 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00
ISBN 978-1-03-273218-3 paper ¥10,015.- (税込) GB£ 35.99

Beyond Liminality: Ontologies of Abundant Betweenness examines the concept of liminality in the social sciences, humanities, and practical fields like management and medicine, exposing and critiquing its ontological assumptions.Originally conceived in response to the near-universal ritualization of changes of status (i.e., 'rites of passage'), liminality was a welcome and much-needed correction to the reigning static and structural models of culture. However, it soon escaped its initial realm and was enthusiastically absorbed by many if not all scholarly disciplines, without consideration of its own state-based (that is, transition from one fixed state to another) ontology. Any status that was not normative, from gay or trans to disabled, irregularly employed, or afflicted with cancer, was interpreted as 'liminal.' By investigating process-based ontologies like those in Daoism, Buddhism, and pre-contact Aztec and contemporary African philosophies, as well as cross-cultural systems of gender, personhood, shamanism, and humanness itself, together with alleged (post)modern "permanent liminality," this book exposes the binary ontology underlying the liminality concept and advocates an alternative ontology of instability, flux, compositeness, emergence, and diversity in abundance.Beyond Liminality: Ontologies of Abundant Betweenness is key reading for scholars and students across the social sciences, humanities, and applied disciplines interested in ritual, performance, change, ontology, and epistemology.

ISBN 978-1-03-229836-8 hard ¥57,051.- (税込) GB£ 205.00

The Routledge Handbook of Feminist Anthropology is a comprehensive inter- and intradisciplinary survey of the field of feminist anthropology. It has at its core a focus on raising consciousness and communicating information about gender inequities, suffering, and precarity, as well as furthering a praxis informed by intersectionality, decolonial intent, and compassion.Divided into three clear parts and comprising 34 chapters by an international team of contributors, The Handbook addresses topics in the following key areas:resisting violencecommunicating creativelylabormigration and displacementhealth and diseasereproductionintersectionalitydecolonial work.The collection assesses the field at an interesting moment in time-one defined by social justice and populist movements gone global; once and future pandemics; extreme environmental disasters; and neoliberalism interrupted. How do gender, sex, and sexuality intersect with these phenomena? In answer, contributors to this volume put a heterogeneous anthropological approach in place; they advance interdisciplinary conversations, as well as renew a commitment to intradisciplinary dialogue.The Routledge Handbook of Feminist Anthropology is essential reading for students, researchers, and instructors in anthropology, and will also be of interest to those in related disciplines such as gender studies, queer studies, economics, biomedicine, political science, sociology, geography, and science and technology studies.

Nicholas, George / Watkins, Joe (eds.), Working as Indigenous Archaeologists: Reckoning New Paths Between Past and Present Lives. (Archaeology and Indigenous Peoples) 830 pp. 2024:8 (Routledge, UK) <719-1159>
ISBN 978-1-03-202537-7 hard ¥57,051.- (税込) GB£ 205.00

Working as Indigenous Archaeologists explores the often-contentious relationship between Indigenous and other formerly colonized peoples and Archaeology through their own voices.Over the past 30-plus years, the once-novel field of Indigenous Archaeology has become a relatively familiar part of the archaeological landscape. It has been celebrated, criticized, and analyzed as to its practical and theoretical applications, and its political nature. No less important are the life stories of its Indigenous practitioners. What has brought some of them to become practicing archaeologists or heritage managers? What challenges have they faced from both inside and outside their communities? And why haven't more pursued archaeology as a vocation or avocation? This volume is a collection of 58 autobiographical chapters by Indigenous archaeologists and heritage specialists from around the world-some community based, some academic, some in other realms-who are working to connect past and present in meaningful, and especially personal ways. As Archaeology continues to evolve, there remain strong tensions between an objective, science-oriented, evidentiary reasoning approach to knowing the past, and a more subjective, relational approach informed by local values, traditional knowledge, and holistic perspective. While there are no maps for these new territories, hearing directly from those Indigenous individuals who have pursued archaeology reveals the pathways taken. Those stories will provide inspiration and confidence for those curious about what lies ahead. This is an important volume for anyone interested in the present state and future of the archaeological discipline.

Scalici, Giorgio, Pain, Play and Music: Death and Healing Rites Among the Wana. 256 pp. 2024:5 (Bloomsbury Academic, UK) <719-1162>
ISBN 978-1-350-23625-7 hard ¥23,655.- (税込) GB£ 85.00

Through fieldwork with the Wana people of Morowali, Central Sulawesi, Giorgio Scalici shows how music serves as a connection between the human world and the hidden world of spirits and emotion. The Wana people of Morowali accept the experiences of pain, illness and loss, and transform them into something positive: rituals that celebrate life, friendship and the community. By examining rituals such as the momago, the main Wana healing ritual, and the kayori, the funeral, this book investigates how music is used by the Wana to heal people, control emotions, reinforce the sense of community and to mark the cultural death of the community member. In this study, music transforms the pain of loss into a playful event that heals the community and assures its future. This book will be of interest to the wider academic study of religion, anthropology and ethnomusicology as it looks as at funerals as healing rituals for the community which lead the living and the dead through critical times.

ISBN 978-3-031-49718-6 hard ¥28,112.- (税込) EUR 119.99

This volume explores violence in bioarchaeological case studies from various cultures, geographic regions, and time periods throughout the Eastern Hemisphere through the lens of Neil Whitehead's concept of poetics. It emphasizes the role and power of performance and ritual in violent acts, and how different types of violence are used within societies. Whitehead's poetics of violence model has primarily been applied to Western Hemisphere assemblages and indigenous groups, and this is the first volume dedicated to the application of this theoretical model to Europe, Asia, and Africa. Developed from a symposium organized at the American Association of Physical Anthropologists annual meeting in 2018, this volume keeps a tight focus on the direct link between physical evidence for violence in human remains and the contextualized interpretations of how that violence may have functioned within an individual's society. This type of theoretical interpretation, which treats violence as a meaningful act firmly embedded within its cultural context, rather than as an aberration, is rarely applied to archaeological assemblages and human remains from the Eastern Hemisphere. This is the first volume to offer direct physical evidence for how violence was enacted and understood within different societies in the past. This volume aims to make these rigorous theoretical studies available to students and professionals in archaeology, anthropology, and bioarchaeology, and to provide a model for other researchers to interpret evidence of violence in human remains from archaeological contexts.

Byrne, George, Ethnographic Constructions of Indigenous Others: Indigeneity, Climate Change, and the Limits of Western Epistemology. 232 pp. 2024:4 (Routledge, UK) <717-859>
ISBN 978-1-03-237776-6 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00
ISBN 978-1-03-237777-3 paper ¥10,015.- (税込) GB£ 35.99

This book examines the ways in which indigeneity interacts with climate change politics at multiple levels, and at the same time offers a self-critical reflection on the role of ethnographic research (and researchers) in this process. Through a multi-sited ethnography, it shows how indigeneity and climate change mitigation are at this point so intensely intertwined that one cannot be clearly understood without considering the other. While indigenous identities have been (re)defined in relation to climate change, it argues that indigenous peoples continue to subvert pervasive notions of the nature/culture dichotomy and disrupt our understanding of what it means to be human in relation to nature. It encourages students and researchers in anthropology, international development, and other related fields to engage in more meaningful reflection on the epistemic shortcomings of 'the West', including in our own research, and to acknowledge the ongoing role of power, coloniality, extractivism, and Whiteness in Climate Change discourses.

Cunliffe, Barry, Driven by the Monsoons: Through the Indian Ocean and the Seas of China. 544 pp. 2024:10 (Oxford U. Pr., UK) <717-759>
ISBN 978-0-19-888681-5 hard ¥8,349.- (税込) GB£ 30.00

The Silk Road may be one origin of globalization, but the Indian Ocean is another. Barry Cunliffe examines the beginning of maritime trade using the evidence of archaeology and the tales of great travellers such as Marco Polo, Ibn Battuta, and the Chinese Admiral, Zheng He. This story complements that of the land routes, showing how humans have been driven across thousands of years to create and maintain networks whatever the difficulties. Driven by the Monsoons illuminates maritime connections between the Indian Ocean and its surrounding water routes: the Arabian Gulf and the Red and China Seas. It begins with the movement of humans into South-East Asia and ends about 1600 CE when European companies emerge to takeover. It is tale of exotic goods, material needs, adventure, and desire. While conditions at sea and the abilities of the maritime communities provided a degree of stability, the direction and intensity of trade and the types of commodities on the move was determined by the fortunes and aspirations of distant empires, those of China in the east and South-West Asia and the Mediterranean in the west. This ever-changing pressure provided the dynamic situation in which society and economies in East Africa, India and South-East Asia flourished. Driven by the Monsoons explores the birth of the modern, connected, world.

This book examines the process of domination of a civilisation and the creation of a vast empire by the British in India in the late 19th and early 20th century. It explores how they extended and maintained their tenuous rule over India through coercion, violent oppression and exploration of knowledge of this vast region and its people. Excavating archival materials, this volume looks at extensive ethnographic surveys, the study of history, cartography, archaeology, native languages and literatures from colonial times. It takes a critical look at the attempts at unraveling the social structural principles such as caste and religious groups and also how power was used in multiple forms and contexts to establish dominance over the people of the subcontinent and its resources. The essays in this volume are from a period when the technologies of colonization were being experimented with and reflect a mixed bag of admiration, derogation and paternalism from those holding positions of power and responsibility, including some elite Indians. It further examines the emergence of a sense of nationalism, a critique of the Eurocentric views of the colonial masters, indicating the contribution of Western education to the formation of an Indian identity that finds resonance in modern times.This book will be useful to students and researchers of anthropology, sociology, public administration, modern history, colonial studies, and demography. It will also be of interest to civil servants, students of history, Indian culture and society, religions, colonial history, law, and South Asia studies.

Niekerk, Carl, Enlightenment Anthropology: Defining Humanity in an Era of Colonialism. (Max Kade Research Institute) 266 pp. 2024:4 (Pennsylvania State U. Pr., US) <717-1024>
ISBN 978-0-271-09686-5 hard ¥25,861.- (税込) US$ 119.95

In this book, Carl Niekerk probes the origins of modern anthropology in the European Enlightenment, foregrounding how the knowledge transfer between an international array of natural historians and public intellectuals-including Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon; Voltaire; Denis Diderot; Immanuel Kant; and Johann Gottfried Herder-shaped the emerging discipline and its central debates. Reexamining how these many voices crossed paths and diverged, Niekerk sharpens our understanding of how anthropology, as we know it today, came to be.As a "natural history of man," anthropology during the Enlightenment argued that humans across the globe belonged to a single species and that human diversity could be explained as the product of time and space, climate and geography. While this knowledge could be emancipatory-fostering curiosity rather than superiority around questions of difference among some thinkers-it also contributed to the emergence of new notions, especially "race" and "culture," that were used by many to justify slavery and the colonial project. With an emphasis on how we can use the ambiguities and deficiencies of the past to help guide our thinking and actions today, this book will appeal to a widely interdisciplinary audience, including anthropologists, historians and philosophers of science, intellectual historians, Germanists, and scholars of the European Enlightenment.
