    Berghahn Books 2009; US$ 34.95

    Latin American cities have always been characterized by a strong tension between what is vaguely described as their formal and informal dimensions.

  • The Practice of Warby Aparna Rao; Michael Bollig; Monika Böck

    Berghahn Books 2008; US$ 34.95

    The fact is that war comes in many guises and its effects continue to be felt long after peace is proclaimed. This challenges the anthropologists who write of war as participant observers. Participant observation inevitably deals with the here and now, with the highly specific. It is only over the long view that one can begin to see the commonalities... more...

  • Rebirth of a Cultureby Hillary Hope Herzog; Todd Herzog; Benjamin Lapp

    Berghahn Books 2008; US$ 120.00

    After 1945, Jewish writing in German was almost unimaginable-and then only in reference to the Shoah. Only in the 1980s, after a period of mourning, silence, and processing of the trauma, did a new Jewish literature evolve in Germany and Austria. This volume focuses on the re-emergence of a lively Jewish cultural scene in the German-speaking countries... more...
