Reviews

“In addition to theories, this book informs us about anthropological methods. Several pieces enhance general findings with accounts of pertinent individual case studies. … Like many anthologies, this volume explores diverse subjects, rather than offering one comprehensive and unified text. As a whole, however, it offers its readers rich, overlapping experiences in two dynamic and colorful worlds. … Both vibrant worlds are skillfully portrayed as diverse and full of contrasts and tensions, achievements and challenges.” (Pamela Sour, pol-int.org, January, 2016)
