Glueck, Kim / Thubauville, Sophia (eds.), Saving and Being Safe Away from Home: Savings and Insurance Associations in Ethiopia and Its Diaspora. (Culture and Social Practice) 250 S. 2024:8 (Transcript, GW) <727-870>

Savings and insurance associations are widespread not only in Ethiopia but also in its diaspora, even in countries with diversified and comprehensive formal financial institutions. The contributors to this volume give a comprehensive overview of these associations in Ethiopia and its diaspora and, at the same time, ask what the activities within these associations tell us about their members' future aspirations and ideas of a "good life".

Roca-Sanchez, Juanita, Bolivia and the Making of the Global Indigenous Movement: Anthropology, Development and Transnationalism. (Routledge Studies in Indigenous Peoples and Policy) 256 pp. 2024:10 (Routledge, UK) <727-908>
ISBN 978-1-03-257870-5 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00

This book investigates how western anthropological trends, development discourse and transnational activism came to create and define the global indigenous movement.Using Bolivia as a case study, the author demonstrates through a historical research, how international ideas of what it means and does not mean to be indigenous have played out at the national level. Tracing these trends from pre-revolutionary Bolivia, the Inter-American indigenismo in the 1940s up to Evo Morales' downfall, the book reflects on Bolivia's national-level policy discourse and constitutional changes, but also asks to what extent these principles have been transmitted to the country's grassroots organisations and movements such as "Indianismo", "Katarismo", "CSUTCB" and "CIDOB". Overall, the book argues that indigeneity can only be adequately understood, as a longue duree anthropological, political, and legal construction, crafted within broader geopolitical contexts. Within this context, the classical dichotomy between "indigenous" and "whites" should be challenged, in favour of a more nuanced understanding of plural indigeneities.This book will be of interest to researchers from across the fields of global studies, political anthropology, history of anthropology, international development, socio-legal studies, Latin American history, and indigenous studies.

Borgstrom, Erica / Visser, Renske, Critical Approaches to Death, Dying and Bereavement. (Critical Approaches to Health) 198 pp. 2024:10 (Routledge, UK) <727-270>
ISBN 978-1-03-233061-7 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00
ISBN 978-1-03-233062-4 paper ¥10,822.- (税込) GB£ 36.99

Critical Approaches to Death Dying and Bereavement is the first of its kind to examine key topics in death, dying and bereavement through a critical lens, highlighting how the understanding and experience of death can vary considerably, based on social, cultural, historical, political, and medical contexts. It looks at the complex ways in which death and dying are managed, from the political level down to end of life care, and the inequalities that surround and impact experiences of death, dying and bereavement.Readers are introduced to key theories such as the medicalisation, as well as contemporary issues, such as social movements, pandemics, and assisted dying. The book stresses how death is not only a biological process or event, but rather shaped by a range of intersecting factors. Issues of inequalities in health, inequities in support, and intersectional analyses are to the fore, and each chapter is dedicated to an issue that has interdisciplinary resonance, thus showcasing the wider socio-cultural and political factors that impact this time of life.It is valuable reading for scholars in thanatology and death studies, and for those in related fields such as sociology of health, medical and social anthropology and interdisciplinary social science courses.

Li, Chuan, Collaborating for Museum Innovation: Technological, Cultural, and Organisational Innovation in Spanish Museums. (Routledge Studies in Innovation, Organizations and Technology) 180 pp. 2024:9 (Routledge, UK) <727-341>
ISBN 978-1-03-200239-2 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00

This book is a fresh reflection on the study of museum innovation, with special attention paid to the enabling role of collaboration within the process. It sets out to capture the innovation dynamics of museums and explore to what extent and how collaborative arrangement can contribute to different types of innovative activities in the museum sector. The book presents a holistic review of museum innovation from multiple perspectives of, among others, economics, sociology, museology and organizational study, while adopting an interdisciplinary approach to explore and analyse the innovation process and collaboration mechanism from the viewpoint of economics and sociology. The research presented is based on three interdependent aspects: firstly, a holistic definition and taxonomy of innovation in museum organisations; secondly, qualitative and quantitative analysis of the enabling role of collaboration in technological, cultural and organizational innovation in museums; and thirdly, multiple case studies for the identification and evaluation of effective collaboration models in different types of innovation. This is a problem-oriented study, which avoids focusing on those large and super museums that have been well-documented in prior studies; instead, it concentrates on small-and medium-sized museums, which account for more than 85% of museums in the world and have become the main resources of cultural tourism and the creative economy at a regional level. Primarily written for postgraduates, researchers and academics interested in innovation study, innovation in cultural and creative sectors, and museum study, the findings may also have important implications on innovation management and policy for regional museums and public authorities.

世界の宗教における自己と死後の理念入門 第2版
Sumegi, Angela, Understanding Death: Ideas of Self and the Afterlife in Religions of the World. 2nd ed. 336 pp. 2024:9 (Wiley-Blackwell, UK) <727-159>
ISBN 978-1-394-18513-9 paper ¥8,868.- (税込) US$ 38.95

What is death? How can we respond to death? Why must we die? Where do we go from here? Do we go anywhere? Understanding Death offers a thorough introduction to the views and practices of various religions regarding death and life after death. Drawing on examples from Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, and Shamanic traditions, this student-oriented textbook explores how different conceptions of the "self" or soul inform the way humans interpret life and assign meaning to the phenomenon of death. Incorporating contributions from members of each faith, Understanding Death provides readers with a comparative overview of how death is expressed and constructed in religious texts and canonical interpretations. Accessible chapters discuss how major religions address the nature of death itself while illustrating how history, philosophy, and ritual reflect what is important in understanding the meaning of death in that religion. Now in its second edition, Understanding Death is revised and updated throughout, featuring three entirely new chapters on Sikhism, Jainism, as well as changing attitudes and new technologies related to death and dying in the twenty-first century. Understanding Death: Ideas of Self and the Afterlife in Religions of the World, Second Edition, is an ideal textbook for undergraduate students and lecturers in Religious Studies programs, and an excellent resource for non-specialist readers interested in the subject.

Wijnia, Lieke / Bielo, James S. (eds.), Museums as Ritual Sites: Civilizing Rituals Reconsidered. 288 pp. 2024:10 (Routledge, UK) <727-165>
ISBN 978-1-03-227009-8 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00

Museums as Ritual Sites critically examines the assumption that museums inherently function as ritual sites and, in turn, are poised to exert influence on cultural and societal change.Bringing together a diverse, international group of interdisciplinary scholars and curators, the volume celebrates and critically engages with Carol Duncan's seminal work, Civilizing Rituals. Presenting a wide-ranging exploration of how museums function as liminal zones in broader societal contexts, the book discusses major topics identified as functioning at the heart of the above-mentioned paradigm shift: diversity and inclusion, consumption, religion, and tradition. These topics are studied through the lens of their ritual implications in museum practice. Presenting case studies on ethnographic, art, history, community, and memorial practices in museums, the book reflects the diversity of the contemporary international museum field. As such, the volume presents a critical and updated revision of the ritual perspective on museums - both as it was presented by Duncan and as it has since been developed in the field of museum studies.Museums as Ritual Sites will be essential reading for academics and students working in museum studies, heritage studies, cultural anthropology, religious studies, and ritual studies. Museums as Ritual Sites will also be of interest to those working across the humanities and social sciences who are interested in the intersection of museums or archives with indigeneity and decolonization.

Rodon, Thierry / Theriault, S. / Keeling, A. et al. (eds.), Mining and Indigenous Livelihoods: Rights, Revenues, and Resistance. (Routledge Studies of the Extractive Industries and Sustainable Development) 348 pp. 2024:8 (Routledge, UK) <727-224>
ISBN 978-1-03-251628-8 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00

This book maps the encounters between Indigenous Peoples and local communities with mining companies in various post-colonial contexts.Combining comparative and multidisciplinary analysis, the contributors to this volume shine a light on how the mining industry might adapt its practices to the political and legal contexts where they operate. Understanding these processes and how communities respond to these encounters is critical to documenting where and how encounters with mining may benefit or negatively impact Indigenous Peoples. The experiences and reflections shared by Indigenous and non-Indigenous contributors will enhance our understanding of evolving practices and of the different strategies and discourses developed by Indigenous Peoples to deal with mining projects. By mobilizing in-depth fieldwork in five regions-Australia, Canada, Sweden, New Caledonia, and Brazil-this body of work highlights voices often marginalized in mining development studies, including those of Indigenous Peoples and women.This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of mining and the extractive industries, sustainable development, natural resource management, and Indigenous Peoples.

Burger, Tim / Mahar, Usman / Schild, Pascale et al. (eds.), The Multi-Sided Ethnographer: Living the Field beyond Research. (Culture and Social Practice) 328 S. 2024:5 (Transcript, GW) <727-1105>
ISBN 978-3-8376-6677-9 paper ¥12,755.- (税込) EUR 52.00

As ethnographic fieldwork blurs the boundaries between >private< and >professional< life, ethnographers always appear to be on duty, looking out for valuable encounters and waiting for the next moment of disclosure. Yet what lies in the gaps and pauses of fieldwork? The contributions in this volume dedicated to anthropologist Martin Soekefeld explore methodological and ethical dimensions of multi-sided ethnographic research. Based on diverse cases ranging from hobbies over kinship ties to political activism, the contributors show how personal relationships, passions and commitments drive ethnographers in and beyond research, shaping the knowledge they create together with others.

Carroll, Alicia, Indiscipline: Reading Collaboratively Written Native American Autobiography. 224 pp. 2024:10 (U. North Carolina Pr., US) <727-1106>
ISBN 978-1-4696-7875-7 paper ¥7,957.- (税込) US$ 34.95

In the last few years, there have been myriad media reports regarding Federal Indian boarding schools and their grisly history of violence and cultural erasure against Native people in the United States. The US government recently acknowledged its role for the first time with the Department of the Interior's publication of the ""Federal Indian Boarding School Initiative Investigative Report."" In this book, Alicia Carroll tells the history of one form of literary Native resistance to this violence, that of the collaboratively written autobiography. Focusing on work by Hopi boarding school residents, Carroll shows readers that collaborative autobiographical authorship is a practice of Indigenous intellectual sovereignty, using a method they dub indiscipline: a strategy of defying, refusing, or purposefully failing to follow mandates to conform to settler colonial sex and gender norms, including heteronormativity, the binary construct of sex and gender, and the idea of personhood itself. Through collaboratively written autobiography, Carroll argues that Native authors not only resisted colonial attempts to use sex and gender to alienate them from their homelands and bodies, they created an important Indigenous literary genre that informs our understanding of Native life and art today.

Fixico, Donald L., The American Indian Mind in a Linear World: American Indian Studies and Traditional Knowledge. 2nd ed. 216 pp. 2024:10 (Routledge, UK) <727-1107>
ISBN 978-1-03-271019-8 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00
ISBN 978-1-03-269467-2 paper ¥10,530.- (税込) GB£ 35.99

Now in its second edition, The American Indian Mind in a Linear World examines the persistence of Native peoples in retaining their own worldviews, from the pre-Columbian era into the twenty-first century.The book explores the ways in which Indian people who are close to their cultural traditions think in a circular fashion, understand by relying on visual analysis, and make decisions from an Indigenous logic. Yet, Comanches have a different reality from Mohawks, Apache ethos is not like that of the Lakota, and Indian men and women see things differently. How and why is the Native mind different from the western world? Why have white teachers and missionaries tried to change the minds of Native students? The Indian perspective is not wrong; it is simply different and inclusive, another way of looking at the world and universe. This edition updates the discussion with a new chapter on contemporary American Indian intellectualism and further analysis of the preservation of Indigenous traditional knowledge.Approachable and engaging, this volume is a key resource for students and scholars of Native American and Indigenous studies and Indigenous history.

Round, Phillip H., Inscribing Sovereignties: Writing Community in Native North America. (Critical Indigeneities) 304 pp. 2024:10 (U. North Carolina Pr., US) <727-1113>
ISBN 978-1-4696-8069-9 paper ¥7,957.- (税込) US$ 34.95

Before European settlers arrived in North America, more than 300 distinct languages were being spoken among the continent's Indigenous peoples. But the Euro-American emphasis on alphabetic literacy has historically hidden the power and influence of Indigenous verbal and nonverbal language diversity on encounters between Indigenous North Americans and settlers. In this pathbreaking work, Phillip H. Round reveals how Native North Americans sparked a communications revolution in their adaptation and resistance to settlers' modes of speaking and writing. Round especially focuses on communication through inscription-the physical act of making a mark, the tools involved, and the social and cultural processes that render the mark legible. Using methods from history, literary studies, media studies, linguistics, and material culture studies, Round shows how Indigenous graphic practices embodied Native epistemologies while fostering linguistic innovation.Round's broad theory of graphogenesis-creating meaningful inscription-leads to new insights for both the past and present of Indigenous expression in a range of forms. Readers will find powerful new insights into Indigenous languages and linguistic practices, with important implications not just for scholars but for those working to support ongoing Native American self-determination.

Smith, Shelley L., Developing the Hall of Human Origins: Adaptive Resilience. (Routledge Studies in Anthropology and Museums) 256 pp. 2024:9 (Routledge, UK) <727-1114>
ISBN 978-1-03-267997-6 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00

This book focuses on the development of the National Museum of Natural History's David H. Koch Hall of Human Origins. As one of the most visited human evolution exhibits in the world and the largest such exhibit in the United States of America, it has tremendous influence on public perception and knowledge of human evolution. The chapters explore how this exhibit came about, how it has changed since opening, and the associated educational and public outreach activities of members of the Smithsonian's Human Origins Program. The author uses the term 'adaptive resilience' to describe a central theme of the exhibit, our species' adaptation to changing environments as a key feature of our success, and to refer to the resilience of Richard B. Potts in creating his vision for the hall. Contextual sections situate the hall's development within the history of paleoanthropology, the politics of evolution and climate change, and African contributions. The book will be of particular interest to scholars of anthropology and museum studies as well as the history of science and science communication.

Jain, Pankaj (ed.), Visual Anthropology of Indian Films: Religious Communities and Cultural Traditions in Bollywood and Beyond. 127 pp. 2024:10 (Routledge, UK) <727-1058>
ISBN 978-1-03-277828-0 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00

This book provides a unique insider's look at the world's largest film industry, now globally known as 'Bollywood' and challenges existing notions about Indian films.Indian films have been a worldwide phenomenon for decades. Chapters in this edited volume take a fresh view of various hidden gems by maestros such as Raj Kapoor, Bimal Roy, V Shantaram, Satyajit Ray, Ritwik Ghatak, Mrinal Sen, Shakti Samant, Rishikesh Mukherjee, and others. Other chapters provide a pioneering review and analysis of the portrayal of Indian religious communities such as Hindus, Muslims, Christians, and Parsis. The themes covered include unique Indian feminism and male chauvinism, environment and climate issues, international locations and diaspora tourism, religious harmony and conflict, the India-Pakistan relationship, asceticism, and renunciation in Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism. Unlike many recent studies of Indian films, these chapters do not distinguish between popular and serious cinema. Many chapters focus on Hindi films, but others bring insights from films made in other parts of India and its neighbouring countries.One of the chapters in this volume was originally published in the book titled Film and Place in an Intercultural Perspective India-Europe Film Connections, edited by Krzysztof Stachowiak, Hania Janta, Jani Kozina, and Therese Sunngren-Granlund. Another chapter was originally published in Worldviews: Global Religions, Culture, and Ecology. All other chapters were originally published in Visual Anthropology.

Singh, Kundan / Maheshwari, Krishna, Colonial Discourse and the Suffering of Indian American Children: A Francophone Postcolonial Analysis. 259 pp. 2024:4 (Palgrave Macmillan, UK) <726-941>
ISBN 978-3-031-57626-3 hard ¥12,261.- (税込) EUR 49.99
ISBN 978-3-031-57629-4 paper ¥9,808.- (税込) EUR 39.99

Euro-American misrepresentations of the non-West in general, and in particular on Hinduism and ancient India, run deep and have far greater colonial connections than that have been exposed in academia. This book analyzes the psycho-social consequences that Indian American children face after they are exposed to the school textbook discourse on Hinduism and ancient India. The authors show that there is an intimate connection-an almost exact correspondence-between James Mill's colonial-racist discourse and the current school-textbook discourse. The very parameters and coordinates on which James Mill constructed the discourse are the ones that are being used to describe Hinduism, Hindus, and ancient India in the textbooks currently. Consequently, this archaic and racist discourse, camouflaged under the cover of political correctness, produces in the Indian American children a psychological impact quite similar to what racism is known to produce: shame, inferiority, embarrassment, identity confusion, assimilation, and a phenomenon similar to racelessness where the children dissociate from the tradition and culture of their ancestors. This book argues that the current school textbook discourse on Hinduism and India needs to change so that the Indian American children do not become victims of overt and covert racism. For the change to occur, the first step is to recognize the overarching and pervasive influence of the colonial-racist discourse of James Mill on the textbooks. For the reconstruction of the discourse to take place, the first step is to engage in a thorough deconstruction, which is what the book attempts.

Pillen, Alex, Endurance: Speaking Kurdish in a Warped World. (Brill Kurdish Studies 1) 220 pp. 2024:10 (Brill, NE) <726-965>
ISBN 978-90-04-70951-5 hard ¥29,436.- (税込) EUR 120.00

In Endurance , Alex Pillen portrays a sense of being unique within Kurdish cultural spheres. How to feel unique despite devastating violence, cultural oppression and assimilation is a question faced by many communities globally. Northern Kurdish (Kurmanji) is a focal point for such uniqueness. When a culture is under siege and many have lost a former way of life it may not be clear how a society looks itself in the mirror, finds its reflection. Alex Pillen's portrayal of Speaking Kurdish in a Warped World locates such lines of reflection within everyday language. The fear of a random geopolitical pair of dice is global, a fear to be honed when reading this account of uniqueness in the face of totalising loss

Pintchman, Tracy, Goddess Beyond Boundaries: Worshipping the Eternal Mother at a North American Hindu Temple. 200 pp. 2024:11 (Oxford U. Pr., US) <726-222>
ISBN 978-0-19-067301-7 hard ¥22,542.- (税込) US$ 99.00
ISBN 978-0-19-067302-4 paper ¥4,997.- (税込) US$ 21.95

The Parashakthi Temple in Pontiac, Michigan serves as a site of worship for the Hindu goddess Karumariamman, whose origins are in South India. In her American home Karumariamman has assumed the status of Great Goddess, a tantric deity and wonder worker who communicates directly with devotees through dreams, visions, and miracles. Drawing on fifteen years of field work, Tracy Pintchman reveals how the Parashakthi Temple has become a site of theological and ritual innovation. A unique spiritual community, the temple does not simply reproduce Indian goddess traditions, but instead reimagines Hinduism and the Hindu Goddess in the American religious, cultural, and natural landscape. The congregation's faith is grounded in a vision of the Goddess as a breaker of boundaries, including those of race, ethnicity, religion, geography, history, and nationality. Like her congregants, Pintchman suggests, the goddess is emblematic of the qualities of a new immigrant; she embraces the opportunities her new home affords her and refashions herself, but she does not forget her roots, keeping one foot planted in her Indian homeland and another planted firmly in her new land, the United States. Pintchman considers larger issues concerning the creativity of immigrant Hindu communities and the ways in which diaspora contexts facilitate the production of new forms of Hinduism that are made possible by globalization and modern technology.

Hofmann, Daniela / Frieman, C. J. / Furholt, M. et al., Negotiating Migrations: The Archaeology and Politics of Mobility. (Debates in Archaeology) 264 pp. 2024:8 (Bloomsbury Academic, UK) <726-1143>
ISBN 978-1-350-42766-2 hard ¥21,945.- (税込) GB£ 75.00

As a species, we have always been mobile and migration was a habitual feature of prehistoric life. This open-access volume uses archaeological case studies mainly from the European Neolithic, but also from the Pacific, the US Southwest, the medieval Migration Period and the historical Great Lakes, to discuss how a focus on small-scale inter-personal relations - on the power struggles, negotiations and choices that people make in everyday settings - can help us understand migration events in archaeology. While much archaeological scholarship, using isotopes and aDNA, focuses on migrations as large-scale phenomena and crisis responses, this book offers a new approach by exploring how moving on was embedded in social practice. This book offers a novel reinterpretation of how the political aspects of migration shaped past people's worlds in Europe and beyond, drawing on archaeological, historical, linguistic and aDNA evidence. Overall, the conclusion is that a bottom-up approach can help us to understand migration in the past at a variety of scales, in many different regions of the world The ebook editions of this book are available open access under a CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 licence on bloomsburycollections.com. Open access was funded by the Centre of Advanced Studies in Oslo.

ISBN 978-3-031-55104-8 hard ¥11,035.- (税込) EUR 44.99

A Collection of Creative Anthropologies brings together a series of creative work of anthropologists who share the art of writing that arises from 'ordinary' engagement and reveals its potential for the reimagining of anthropological futures and alternative worlds. This is a collection of creative anthropology anchored in experimentality and encouragement. A book that defies imaginaries of academic convention through the cultivation of a mundus imaginalis requiring moments of pause, of introspection, and of discomfort. This centring of creativity at the heart of anthropology subtly conveys how the complex ethical and moral issues around fieldwork and anthropological theorising can be reflected on through writing otherwise, in creative spaces such as this book. A Collection of Creative Anthropologies fits the current call for radical revisions of the academic canon in anthropology, and the social sciences and humanities more broadly.

ISBN 978-90-04-53523-7 hard ¥38,021.- (税込) EUR 155.00

When was male domination established in human societies, and why did it take hold? How does humanity's most remote past inform today's feminist struggle? This new, updated edition of Primitive Communism Is Not What It Used to Be - available for the first time in English translation - represents a timely contribution to the debate, drawing on the accumulated knowledge of ethnology and archaeology. While noting the many outdated aspects of Morgan and Engels' seminal work, this vast synthesis, guided by a rigorous materialist approach, renews Marxist analysis on a theme that is at once remote and pressingly topical.

Pipatti, Otto, The Origins Of Human Social Nature: Westermarckian Sociology and Social Anthropology. 264 pp. 2024:5 (Palgrave Macmillan, UK) <726-1063>
ISBN 978-3-031-55146-8 hard ¥29,432.- (税込) EUR 119.99

This book is the first comprehensive study of Westermarckian sociology and social anthropology, which flourished in Finland for half a century, until the Second World War. Edward Westermarck (1862-1939) was not only the founder of Finnish sociology but also Britain's first professor of sociology, influencing and contributing to teaching and research at LSE for nearly three decades. In Finland, a group of disciples shared his Darwinian interest in the human mind and the comparative study of the origins of social phenomena. Like Westermarck, they also conducted extensive ethnographic fieldwork beyond Europe. Many of them became internationally renowned scholars who published their works through leading British publishers. The book traces his influence on British sociology and social anthropology more broadly also by considering his work and students at LSE, who emphasised their debt to Westermarck. Drawing on both published writings and unpublished archival material, the book offersa reinterpretation of 'origin' as the Westermarckian school's core concept.

Greenhalgh, Susan, Soda Science: Making the World Safe for Coca-Cola. 352 pp. 2024:8 (U. Chicago Pr., US) <725-920>
ISBN 978-0-226-82914-2 hard ¥26,185.- (税込) US$ 115.00
ISBN 978-0-226-83473-3 paper ¥5,692.- (税込) US$ 25.00

Takes readers deep inside the secret world of corporate science, where powerful companies and allied academic scientists mold research to meet industry needs. The 1990s were tough times for the soda industry. In the United States, obesity rates were exploding. Public health critics pointed to sugary soda as a main culprit and advocated for soda taxes that might decrease the consumption of sweetened beverages-and threaten the revenues of the giant soda companies. Soda Science tells the story of how industry leader Coca-Cola mobilized allies in academia to create a soda-defense science that would protect profits by advocating exercise, not dietary restraint, as the priority solution to obesity, a view few experts accept. Anthropologist and science studies specialist Susan Greenhalgh discovers a hidden world of science-making-with distinctive organizations, social networks, knowledge-making practices, and ethical claims-dedicated to creating industry-friendly science and keeping it under wraps. By tracing the birth, maturation, death, and afterlife of the science they made, Greenhalgh shows how corporate science has managed to gain such a hold over our lives. Spanning twenty years, her investigation takes her from the US, where the science was made, to China, a key market for sugary soda. In the US, soda science was a critical force in the making of today's society of step-counting, fitness-tracking, weight-obsessed citizens. In China, this distorted science has left its mark not just on national obesity policies but on the apparatus for managing chronic disease generally. By following the scientists and their ambitious schemes to make the world safe for Coke, Greenhalgh offers an account that is more global-and yet more human-than the story that dominates public understanding today. Coke's research isn't fake science, Greenhalgh argues; it was real science, conducted by real and eminent scientists, but distorted by its aim. Her gripping book raises crucial questions about conflicts of interest in scientific research, the funding behind familiar messages about health, and the cunning ways giant corporations come to shape our diets, lifestyles, and health to their own needs.

How hackers facilitate community technology projects that counter the monoculture of "big tech" and point us to brighter, innovative horizons. A digital world in relentless movement-from artificial intelligence to ubiquitous computing-has been captured and reinvented as a monoculture by Silicon Valley "big tech" and venture capital firms. Yet very little is discussed in the public sphere about existing alternatives. Based on long-term field research across San Francisco, Tokyo, and Shenzhen, Common Circuits explores a transnational network of hacker spaces that stand as potent, but often invisible, alternatives to the dominant technology industry. In what ways have hackers challenged corporate projects of digital development? How do hacker collectives prefigure more just technological futures through community projects? Luis Felipe R. Murillo responds to these urgent questions with an analysis of the hard challenges of collaborative, autonomous community-making through technical objects conceived by hackers as convivial, shared technologies. Through rich explorations of hacker space histories and biographical sketches of hackers who participate in them, Murillo describes the social and technical conditions that allowed for the creation of community projects such as anonymity and privacy networks to counter mass surveillance; community-made monitoring devices to measure radioactive contamination; and small-scale open hardware fabrication for the purposes of technological autonomy. Murillo shows how hacker collectives point us toward brighter technological futures-a renewal of the "digital commons"-where computing projects are constantly being repurposed for the common good.

DeAngelo, Darcie, How to Love a Rat: Detecting Bombs in Postwar Cambodia. (Atelier: Ethnographic Inquiry in the Twenty-First Century 17) 198 pp. 2024:9 (U. California Pr., US) <725-657>
ISBN 978-0-520-39740-8 hard ¥21,631.- (税込) US$ 95.00
ISBN 978-0-520-39742-2 paper ¥6,818.- (税込) US$ 29.95

How to Love a Rat takes place in a Cambodian minefield. Working amid hidden bombs, former war combatants use explosive-sniffing rats to clear mines from the land. In total, an estimated four to six million landmines in Cambodia have been left behind by wars that ended decades ago. This has created the conditions for a flourishing mine-clearance industry, where workers who were once enemy combatants may now be employed on the same clearance teams. Zeroing in on two distinct sets of feelings, Darcie DeAngelo paints a portrait of the love experienced between humans and rats and the suspicions felt between former adversaries turned coworkers. In doing so, she points to how human-animal relationships in the minefield produce models for relationality among people from opposing sides of war. The ways the deminers love for the rats mediate both the traumatic violence of the past and the uncertain dangers of the minefield. The book's stories depict an transformative postwar ecology emerging through human-nonhuman relationships, including those shared between humans and rats, landmines, and spirits.

Folch, Christine, The Book of Yerba Mate: A Stimulating History. 256 pp. 2024:9 (Princeton U. Pr., US) <725-769>
ISBN 978-0-691-24639-0 hard ¥6,818.- (税込) US$ 29.95

The untold story of South America's most interesting beverageBrewed from the dried leaves and tender shoots of an evergreen tree native to South America, yerba mate gives its drinkers the jolt of liquid effervescence many of us get from coffee or tea. In Argentina, southern "gaucho" Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay, mate is the stimulating brew of choice, famously quaffed by the Argentine national football team en route to its 2022 FIFA World Cup victory. In The Book of Yerba Mate, Christine Folch offers a wide-ranging exploration of the world's third-most popular naturally stimulating beverage. Folch discusses who drinks mate, and why, and whether this earthier caffeinated drink with its promise of a different buzz and a more authentic, spiritual connection to place can find a market niche beyond South America.Folch traces yerba mate's odysseys across the globe, from South America to the Middle East and North America. She discovers that mate inspired the world's first written tango, powered early Jesuit and German nationalist utopias, ignited one of modern history's most devastating wars, and fueled Catholic conspiracies. And, Folch reports, mate is currently starring in puppet shows put on by Syrian dissidents.By tracing yerba mate production and consumption as they change over time and place, from precolonial Indigenous beginnings to the present, Folch unravels the processes of commodification and their countervailing forces to show how accidents of botany intersect with political economic systems and personal taste. The stories behind the caffeinated infusions we prefer, she finds, are nothing less than the story of how the modern world is put together.

High, Casey, Translating Worlds, Defending Land: Collaborations for Indigenous Rights and Environmental Politics in Amazonia. 224 pp. 2025:2 (Stanford U. Pr., US) <725-775>
ISBN 978-1-5036-4048-1 hard ¥25,047.- (税込) US$ 110.00
ISBN 978-1-5036-4146-4 paper ¥6,375.- (税込) US$ 28.00

In 2019, after decades of ecological damage from oil, Waorani people took to the streets of Amazonian Ecuador to protest drilling on their ancestral lands. Working with international activists, lawyers, and other Indigenous groups, they successfully sued the government for selling oil concessions without prior consent. Placing their struggle for territorial autonomy in the global spotlight, this unprecedented legal victory for environmental rights by an Indigenous people reflected the new forms of collaboration emerging in contemporary Amazonia. Translating Worlds, Defending Land explores how Waorani collaborations, whether with environmentalists or academic researchers, bring about new possibilities, challenges, and imaginative horizons. Based on fieldwork over a period of twenty-five years, Casey High interrogates what these engagements mean for Indigenous communities and how they offer critical reflection on collaboration as a concept, method, and practice. The alliances, misunderstandings, and conflicts that emerge in these contexts challenge the assumption that productive collaborations reflect-or require-shared purposes, generating important implications for an engaged anthropology open to reconsidering what constitutes ethnographic knowledge and who it is for. As some young Waorani adults become not just community leaders or environmental citizens, but also skilled researchers and ethnographers, translating between Indigenous understandings of land and the Western language conservation, they create a powerful new voice in international environmental politics.

Sanchez, Daina, The Children of Solaga: Indigenous Belonging across the U.S.-Mexico Border. 192 pp. 2024:12 (Stanford U. Pr., US) <725-786>
ISBN 978-1-5036-4022-1 hard ¥22,770.- (税込) US$ 100.00
ISBN 978-1-5036-4137-2 paper ¥5,692.- (税込) US$ 25.00

In this book, Daina Sanchez examines how Indigenous Oaxacan youth form racial, ethnic, community, and national identities away from their ancestral homeland. Assumptions that Indigenous peoples have disappeared altogether, or that Indigenous identities are fixed, persist in the popular imagination. This is far from the truth. Sanchez demonstrates how Indigenous immigrants continually remake their identities and ties to their homelands while navigating racial and social institutions in the U.S. and Latin America, and, in doing so, transform notions of Indigeneity and push the boundaries of Latinidad. Drawing on long-term ethnographic fieldwork between Los Angeles, California and San Andres Solaga, a Zapotec town in the Mexican state of Oaxaca, The Children of Solaga centers Indigenous ways of knowing and being in the world, and adds a much-needed transnational dimension to the study of Indigenous immigrant adaptation and assimilation. Sanchez, herself a diasporic Solaguena, argues that the lived experiences of Indigenous immigrants offer a unique vantage point from which to see how migration across settler-borders transforms processes of self-making among displaced Indigenous people. Rather than accept attempts by both Mexico and the U.S. to erase their Indigenous identity or give in to anti-Indigenous and anti-immigrant prejudice, Oaxacan immigrants and their children defiantly celebrate their Indigenous identity through practices of el goce comunal ("communal joy") in their new homes.

考古学とプラスチック・ハンドブック
Godin, Genevieve et al. (eds.), The Routledge Handbook of Archaeology and Plastics. 720 pp. 2024:9 (Routledge, UK) <725-805>
ISBN 978-1-03-222372-8 hard ¥59,983.- (税込) GB£ 205.00

The Routledge Handbook of Archaeology and Plastics investigates the archaeology of the contemporary world through the lens of its most distinguishing and problematic material.Plastics are ubiquitous and have been so for nearly three generations since they became widely used in the early 1950s. Plastics will persist for millennia, their legacies as toxic heritage being felt deep into the future. In this book - comprising 32 original, at times disturbing, and critically engaged contributions - scholars from archaeology and other cognate disciplines explore plastics from a number of different angles and perspectives. Together these contributions highlight the dilemma that plastics present: their usefulness on the one hand, and the threats they present to environmental health on the other. The volume also explores the lessons that archaeologists can learn from plastics, about episodes of mass production, consumption and toxicity in the past, and also - importantly - about the future.This important and timely collection will therefore be of interest to all archaeologists irrespective of their period of study, or their geographical focus, and to students of archaeology and cultural heritage. It will also be relevant for researchers and students in other fields of study that focus on plastics and their environmental and social impacts. Ultimately, this book concerns the contemporary world and the impact of people upon it, through the archaeological lens.

Balakian, Sophia, Unsettled Families: Refugees, Humanitarianism, and the Politics of Kinship. (Stanford Studies in Human Rights) 248 pp. 2025:2 (Stanford U. Pr., US) <725-428>
ISBN 978-1-5036-3965-2 hard ¥25,047.- (税込) US$ 110.00
ISBN 978-1-5036-4119-8 paper ¥6,375.- (税込) US$ 28.00

How the family unit exists simultaneously as a focus of humanitarian compassion and of securitized suspicion. Against the backdrop of the global refugee crisis, Unsettled Families investigates the parameters that Global North governments and international humanitarian organizations use to classify most displaced families-more than 99% globally-as ineligible for resettlement, and often as fraudulent. But "fraud" as a category is not as self-evident as it may first appear. Nor is "the family." Based on long-term fieldwork between Nairobi, Kenya and Columbus, Ohio, Sophia Balakian tells stories of Somali and Congolese refugees navigating a complicated global assemblage of humanitarian organizations, immigration bureaucracies, and national security agencies as they seek permanent, new homes. Viewing the concepts of "fraud" and "family" from different vantage points in this context, Balakian shows how the categories begin to blur out of focus, sometimes to evaporate altogether; what seems to be contained within them scatter outside their received boundaries. Practices that resettlement organizations deem fraudulent are often understood by people living as refugees to be moral actions in an unequal world. Such practices allow them to fulfill obligations to kin-kin defined expansively, in ways that at times exceed the boundaries of normative, US frameworks. Bringing questions of kinship into current discussions on humanitarianism, Balakian locates "the family" as a crucial category in processes of producing, policing, and contesting the boundaries of nation-states, and of the nature of securitized humanitarianism in the 21st century.

現代欧州における極右青年活動家
Pasieka, Agnieszka, Living Right: Far-Right Youth Activists in Contemporary Europe. 312 pp. 2024:11 (Princeton U. Pr., US) <725-543>
ISBN 978-0-691-25842-3 hard ¥7,969.- (税込) US$ 35.00

A sobering look at the seductive power of fascist ideas for the youngRadical nationalism is on the rise in Europe and throughout the world. Living Right provides an in-depth account of the ideas and practices that are driving the varied forms of far-right activism by young people from all walks of life, revealing how these social movements offer the promise of comradery, purpose, and a moral calling to self-sacrifice, and demonstrating how far-right ideas are understood and lived in ways that speak to a variety of experiences.In this eye-opening book, Agnieszka Pasieka draws on her own sometimes harrowing fieldwork among Italian, Polish, and Hungarian militant youths, painting unforgettable portraits of students, laborers, entrepreneurs, musicians, and activists from well-off middle class backgrounds who have all found a nurturing home in the far right. Providing an in-depth account of radical nationalist communities and networks that are taking root across Europe, she shows how the simultaneous orientation of these groups toward the local and the transnational is a key to their success. With a focus on far-right morality that challenges commonly held ideas about the right, Pasieka describes how far-right movements afford opportunities to the young to be active members of tightly bonded comradeships while sharing in a broader project with global ramifications.Required reading for anthropologists and anyone concerned about the resurgence of far-right militancy today, Living Right sheds necessary light on the forces that have made the growing appeal of fascist idealism for young people one of the most alarming trends of our time.

Significantly expanded and updated-a lively excursion into Japanese folklore and its increasing influence within global popular culture. Monsters, spirits, fantastic beings, and supernatural creatures haunt the folklore and popular culture of Japan. Broadly labeled yokai, they appear in many forms, from tengu mountain goblins and kappa water sprites, to shape-shifting kitsune foxes and long-tongued ceiling-lickers. Popular today in anime, manga, film, and video games, many yokai originated in local legends, folktales, and regional ghost stories. The Book of Yokai invites readers to examine how people create, transmit, and collect folklore, and how they make sense of the mysteries in the world around them. Revised and expanded, this second edition features fifty new illustrations, including an all-new yokai gallery of stunning color images tracing the visual history of yokai across centuries. In clear and accessible language, Michael Dylan Foster unpacks the cultural and historical contexts of yokai, interpreting their varied meanings and introducing people who have pursued them through the ages.

ISBN 978-1-03-258874-2 hard ¥14,626.- (税込) GB£ 49.99 *

This book provides a clear and comprehensive introduction to the past, present, and future direction of death rituals and deathcare systems within Japan.As Japan heads toward a precarious future shaped by its super-ageing society, secularisation, and economic stagnation, the socioreligious structures that once organised death and funeral practice are becoming increasingly unstable. In their place, new social structures, technologies, and rituals for the farewell of the dead, handling of cremains, and commemoration of the ancestors have begun to emerge. The work is informed by the authors' extensive research within Japan's funeral, cemetery, and memorialisation sectors and the latest Japanese data sources and academic publications, many of which are not currently available in English.Providing readily accessible and contextualising information, this book will be an essential reference for graduate students and academics, as well as international policymakers and deathcare practitioners.

ISBN 978-0-520-39616-6 paper ¥6,818.- (税込) US$ 29.95

Based on over ten years of fieldwork in Peru and Aotearoa New Zealand, Recovering Our Ancestral Foodways explores how Quechua and Maori peoples describe, define, and enact well-being through the lens of foodways. By analyzing how these two Indigenous communities operationalize knowledge to promote sustainable food systems, physical and spiritual well-being, and community health, Mariaelena Huambachano puts forth a powerful philosophy of food sovereignty called the Chakana/Mahutonga. She argues that this framework offers a foundation for understanding the practices and policies needed to transform the global food system to nourish the world and preserve the Earth. One of the key features of this book is the development of the author's original research methodology-the Khipu Model-which will serve as a vital resource for future research on Indigenous ways of knowing.

ISBN 978-1-5036-4115-0 paper ¥7,286.- (税込) US$ 32.00

In recent years, debates over healthcare have accompanied rapid advances in technology, from the expansion of telehealth services to artificial intelligence driven diagnostics. In this book, Shawn Bender delves into the world of Japanese robots engineered for care. Care robots (kaigo robotto) emerged early in the 21st century, when roboticists began converting assembly line technologies into responsive machines for older adults and people with disabilities. These robots are meant to be felt and programmed to feel. While some greet them with enthusiasm, others fear that they might replace a fundamentally human task. Based on fieldwork in Japan, Denmark, and Germany, Bender traces the emergence of care robots in Japan and examines their impact on therapeutic practice around the world. Social science scholarship on robotics tends to be either speculative-imagining life together with robots-or experimental-observing robot-human interaction in laboratories or through short-term field studies. Instead, Bender follows roboticists developing technologies in Japan, and travels with the robots themselves into everyday sites of care, tracking the integration of robots into institutional care and the connection of care practice to robotics development. By exploring the application of Japanese robotics across the globe, Feeling Machines highlights the entanglements of therapeutic practice and technological innovation in an age of more-than-human care.

ISBN 978-1-03-271374-8 hard ¥38,038.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

Cultural Heritage and Mobility from a Multisensory Perspective bridges the gap between cultural heritage and mobility studies through the employment of theoretical and methodological multisensory perspectives.An interdisciplinary volume covering a broad range of empirical cases, this book focuses on the engagement with cultural heritage in the context of mobility. The book presents a grassroots perspective of individual heritage performances by mobile and moving actors, analyzing them with close attention to their embodied aspects: bodily experiences, sensory impressions, and the affect and emotions they evoke. As a result, the collection of case studies presented covers empirical, theoretical, and methodological accounts of the embodiment of heritage in the context of mobility on macro, meso, and micro levels, exploring heritage change and mobility from a multisensory perspective. Cultural Heritage and Mobility from a Multisensory Perspective is primarily targeted at scholars, students and practitioners working within and at the intersection of the fields of cultural heritage and mobility. It will also be of interest to those engaged in the study of tourism, migration and integration studies.

Reconceptualizes human-animal relationships and their political significance in ancient and modern societies. In Live Stock and Dead Things, Hannah Chazin combines zooarchaeology and anthropology to challenge familiar narratives about the role of non-human animals in the rise of modern societies. Conventional views of this process tend to see a mostly linear development from hunter-gatherer societies, to horticultural and pastoral ones, to large-scale agricultural ones, and then industrial ones. Along the way, traditional accounts argue that owning livestock as property, along with land and other valuable commodities, introduced social inequality and stratification. Against this, Chazin raises a provocative question: What if domestication wasn't the origin of instrumentalizing non-human animals after all? Chazin argues that these conventional narratives are inherited from conjectural histories and ignore the archaeological data. In her view, the category of "domestication" flattens the more complex dimensions of humans' relationship to herd animals. In the book's first half, Chazin offers a new understanding of the political possibilities of pastoralism, one that recognizes the powerful role herd animals have played in shaping human notions of power and authority. In the second half, she takes readers into her archaeological fieldwork in the South Caucasus, which sheds further light on herd animals' transformative effect on the economy, social life, and ritual. Appealing to anthropologists and archaeologists alike, this daring book offers a reconceptualization of human-animal relationships and their political significance.

Colwell, Chip, So Much Stuff: How Humans Discovered Tools, Invented Meaning, and Made More of Everything. 304 pp. 2024:10 (U. Chicago Pr., US) <725-1016>
ISBN 978-0-226-83663-8 paper ¥4,554.- (税込) US$ 20.00

How humans became so dependent on things and how this need has grown dangerously out of control. Over three million years ago, our ancient ancestors realized that rocks could be broken into sharp-edged objects for slicing meat, making the first knives. This discovery resulted in a good meal and eventually changed the fate of our species and our planet. With So Much Stuff, archaeologist Chip Colwell sets out to investigate why humankind went from self-sufficient primates to nonstop shoppers, from needing nothing to needing everything. Along the way, he uncovers spectacular and strange points around the world-an Italian cave with the world's first known painted art, a Hong Kong skyscraper where a priestess channels the gods, and a mountain of trash that rivals the Statue of Liberty. Through these examples, Colwell shows how humanity took three leaps that led to stuff becoming inseparable from our lives, inspiring a love affair with things that may lead to our downfall. Now, as landfills brim and oceans drown in trash, Colwell issues a timely call to reevaluate our relationship with the things that both created and threaten to undo our overstuffed planet.

ISBN 978-1-03-271296-3 hard ¥38,038.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

This innovative collection offers a holistic portrait of the multimodal communication potential of images from the Upper Paleolithic times through to today, showcasing image-based creativity throughout the centuries. The volume seeks to extend the boundaries of our understanding of what language and writing can do to show how language can be understood as part of broader codes and how images and figural objects can contribution to meaning-making in communication. The book is divided into four parts, each exploring a different dimension of the interplay between representation, symbolic meaning, and perception in the study of images and drawing on case studies from around the world. The first section looks at cognitive approaches to the earliest symbol-making while the second considers the interaction between images and writing in early scripts. The third section addresses images outside their boxes, showcasing how ancient communication devices can be reinterpreted. A final section features chapters reflecting on embodied semiotic approaches to the representation of images. This book will be of interest to scholars in semiotics, archaeology, cognitive psychology, and linguistic and cultural anthropology.

ISBN 978-1-03-277503-6 hard ¥38,038.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

This volume provides readers with accounts of the contemporary consequences of the Eurocentric Western model of racialized power and extractivist development: cultural, linguistic, and land dispossession, displacement and forced migration, climate and water injustice, and the environmental destruction of Afro-descendent and indigenous communities in the Americas.The past and present circumstances of Afro-descendent and Indigenous peoples in the Americas have been shaped by the "coloniality of power" of Western capitalist modernity. This Eurocentric Western model of racialized power, with its rhetoric of development, progress, salvation, and improvement and invented categories of nature, race, gender, nation, and knowledge, has resulted in the disposing of the worlds of Afro-descendent and Indigenous peoples. The chapters in this book provide critical theoretical and practical approaches to understanding land, territorial, and cultural dispossession and the forms of resistance practiced and engaged in by rural Afro-descendent communities and Indigenous peoples in the Americas.This book will be of particular interest to all scholars, students, and practitioners of education and development, global studies in education, peace studies, international studies, Latin American and Caribbean studies, as well as those working in sociology, development studies, and socio-environmental justice. The chapters in this book, except for chapter 4, were originally published in the Journal of Poverty.

Native Lands analyzes the role of visual and literary culture in contemporary Indigenous campaigns for territorial rights. In the post-1960s era, Indigenous artists and writers have created works that align with the goals and strategies of new Native land-based movements. These works represent Native histories and epistemologies in ways that complement activist endeavors, while also probing the limits of these political projects, especially with regard to gender. The social marginalization of Native women was integral to dispossession. And yet its enduring consequences have remained largely neglected, even in Native organizing, as a pressing concern associated with the status of Indigenous people in settler nation-states. The cultural works discussed in this book provide an urgent Indigenous feminist rethinking of Native politics that exposes the innate gendered dimensions of ongoing settler colonialism. They insist that Indigenous campaigns for territorial rights must entail gender justice for Native women.

An anthology of original essays that examine white supremacy around the globe through the lens of anthropologyWhite supremacy has shaped cultural anthropology from its inception, yet the discipline also offers powerful tools for understanding how this corrosive force structures societies around the world. The Anthropology of White Supremacy explores how this phenomenon works around the globe and within anthropology itself. Gathering original essays from a diverse, international group of anthropologists, this collection illustrates that white supremacy, far from being only a fringe belief of white nationalists and fascists, is a core mainstream ideology. The book includes essays about many countries, including Brazil, Mexico, Nigeria, Norway, Senegal, South Africa, and the United States, and takes up such topics as American advertising, the Belgian Congo, South Asian philosophies, police cadets, U.S. immigration courts, Guantanamo memoirs, Palestinian feminism, Hollywood paparazzi, and how Indigenous anthropologists can counter the damage of settler colonialism. The result reveals not only how anthropology can help us to better comprehend white supremacy, but also how the discipline can help us begin to dismantle it.With contributions by Omolade Adunbi, Samar Al-Bulushi, Aisha M.

Lemke, Ashley, Anthropological Archaeology Underwater. (Elements in Anthropological Archaeology in the 21st Century) 75 pp. 2024:6 (Cambridge U. Pr., UK) <725-1030>
ISBN 978-1-00-949464-9 hard ¥14,626.- (税込) GB£ 49.99 *

Anthropological archaeology underwater is a new field. What type of research is this and how do anthropologists go about it? When most people hear the phrase 'underwater archaeology', they think of shipwrecks and dramatic images of lost ships at sea, but the underwater archaeological record is vast. In addition to historic vessels, water preserves some of the oldest landscapes on the planet. While archaeologists are interested in the past, those working underwater apply the latest technologies to provide fresh understandings about ancient human behaviour. Underwater environments provide preservation that is unmatched on land and therefore the data collected is novel - providing information about human lifeways and creating a picture of the past we would otherwise never see. This Element will explore the world of anthropological archaeology underwater, focusing on submerged sites, and review the techniques, data, and theoretical perspectives which are offering new insights into the human story.

Lempert, Michael, From Small Talk to Microaggression: A History of Scale. 336 pp. 2024:12 (U. Chicago Pr., US) <725-1031>
ISBN 978-0-226-83248-7 hard ¥26,185.- (税込) US$ 115.00

A provocative and eye-opening history of how we have studied and theorized social interaction. In this ambitious, wide-ranging book, anthropologist Michael Lempert offers a conceptual history that explores how, why, and with what effects we have come to think of interactions as "scaled." Focusing on US-based sciences of interaction from 1930 to 1980, Lempert meticulously traces efforts to study conversation microscopically and shows how scale-making has defined pioneering work in sociology, anthropology, and linguistics. Exploring talk therapy and group dynamics studies, social psychology and management science, conversation analysis, "micropolitics," and more, Lempert shows how scale became a defining problem across the behavioral sciences and how new tools and technologies were developed to get to the heart of social life at its most granular. Ultimately, he argues, if we learn how our objects of study have been scaled in advance, we can better understand how we think and interact with them-and with each other-across disciplinary and ideological divides. Even as once-fierce debates over micro and macro have largely subsided, Lempert shows how scale lives on and continues to affect our treatment of language and communication today.

人類学理論に従事する-社会史と政治史 第3版
Moberg, Mark, Engaging Anthropological Theory: A Social and Political History. 3rd ed. 480 pp. 2024:9 (Routledge, UK) <725-1032>
ISBN 978-1-03-253365-0 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00
ISBN 978-1-03-253362-9 paper ¥13,163.- (税込) GB£ 44.99

The updated third edition of this book scrutinizes anew the history of anthropological theory. Covering key concepts and theorists in a lively style, Engaging Anthropological Theory examines the historical context of anthropological ideas and the contested nature of anthropology itself. The book illustrates how anthropological ideas about human diversity are rooted in historical conditions, including the West's relationship with colonized societies and the politics of scholarly inquiry itself. Exploring anthropological ideas in context helps students understand how they evolved and how they relate to society and history. This new edition pays close attention to non-canonical figures and scholars of color whose contributions are too often bypassed in disciplinary histories. Students and instructors will also appreciate the open-ended review questions for each chapter that stimulate critical thought and discussion. Extensively Illustrated throughout, this engaging text moves away from the dry recitation of past viewpoints in anthropology and shows their continued relevance to modern life.

Mol, Annemarie, Eating Is an English Word. 208 pp. 2024:10 (Duke U. Pr., US) <725-1033>
ISBN 978-1-4780-2662-4 hard ¥22,757.- (税込) US$ 99.95
ISBN 978-1-4780-3086-7 paper ¥5,908.- (税込) US$ 25.95

Eating is generally understood as a human need that people satisfy in diverse ways. Eating, however, is also an English word. Other languages, using other words, order reality differently: they may fuse eating with breathing, or distinguish chupar from comer. Anthropologists flag up such differences by leaving a few of their words untranslated, but what language do we think in? This isn't necessarily English. We may be linguistically closer to those whose practices we study: them. Against this background, Eating is an English Word argues that social scientists should let go of the dream of universal concepts. Our analytical terms had better vary. Annemarie Mol and her coauthors exemplify this in a series of material semiotic inquiries into eating practices. They employ terms like lekker, tasting with fingers, chupar, schmecka, gustar, and settling on an okay meal to explore appreciative modes of valuing. Welcome, then, to spirited stories about satisfied stomachs, love for a lamb, juicy fruit treats, and companionable lunches and dinners.

Nemec, Susan / Lythberg, Billie / Woods, Christine (eds.), Settler Responsibility for Decolonisation: Stories from the Field. (Routledge Research in Race and Ethnicity) 232 pp. 2024:9 (Routledge, UK) <725-1034>
ISBN 978-1-03-273663-1 hard ¥38,038.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

This edited collection presents perspectives from a range of disciplines on the challenges of dismantling coloniality in settler societies. Showcasing a variety of pedagogies and case studies, the book offers approaches to the praxis of decolonisation in diverse settings including tertiary education, activism, arts curatorial practice, the media, trans-Indigeneity and psychosocial therapy. Chapters centre on the personal, relational, and political work needed to support decolonisation in settler societies in Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia, the United States, and Canada. Drawing from experiences in the field, contributors argue that to decolonise research and build authentic relationships with Indigenous communities, settler researchers must learn from Indigenous worldviews without appropriating them, disrupt colonial epistemologies, and reconcile their place in colonialism. Indigenising is discussed as a counterpart to the decolonisation process, involving restoring and centring the Indigenous voice within Indigenised socio-cultural, economic, legal, and political structures and institutions, including the return of land. The book is a rich resource for researchers seeking to understand and support decolonisation in settler societies, and will appeal to non-Indigenous scholars, students and those involved in decolonisation work in community and institutional settings.

NiaNia, Wiremu / Bush, Allister / Epston, David, Nga Kuaha: Voices and Visions in Maori Healing and Psychiatry. (Writing Lives: Ethnographic Narratives) 282 pp. 2024:8 (Routledge, UK) <725-1035>
ISBN 978-1-03-203380-8 hard ¥38,038.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

Nga Kuaha: Voices and Visions in Maori Healing and Psychiatry explores what it means to hear voices and see visions from the perspectives of Maori healer Wiremu NiaNia and psychiatrist Allister Bush. Wiremu explains Nga Kuaha as referring to doorways and offers entranceways into Maori knowledge about wairua (spirituality) handed down by his forebears and other Maori sources.The authors provide historical examples of Western mystical experiences and contrasting Western psychiatric and psychological explanations of voices and visions as hallucinations. Further chapters focus on narratives and perspectives from people who have experienced voices and visions, and have had interactions with mental health services, told from multiple viewpoints; individual, whanau (family), Maori healing and psychiatry. The benefits of joint Maori healing and psychiatry approaches on wellbeing are examined. Drawing on their 18-year partnership Wiremu and Allister highlight the harmful colonial impact of psychiatry in suppressing Maori views of voices and visions. They describe ways of working together in clinical practice to address this history of injustice and how to identify whether distressing perceptual experiences may represent Maori cultural experiences, psychiatric or psychological symptoms or all of these. This book advocates for practices that enable genuine partnerships between Maori healers, other wairua practitioners, and mental health clinicians in order to improve the mental health and spiritual care of Maori and perhaps other peoples.
