    Berghahn Books 2009; US$ 34.95

    Mass tourism is one of the most striking developments in postwar western societies, involving economic, social, cultural, and anthropological factors. For many countries it has become a significant, if not the primary, source of income for the resident population. The Mediterranean basin, which has long been a very popular destination, is explored... more...

  • War, Technology, Anthropologyby Koen Stroeken

    Berghahn Books 2011; US$ 12.99

    Technologies of the allied warfare in Iraq and Afghanistan, such as remote-controlled drones and night vision goggles, allow the user to "virtualize" human targets. This coincides with increased civilian casualties and a perpetuation of the very insecurity these technologies are meant to combat. This concise volume of research and reflections from... more...

  • Militant Lactivism?by Charlotte Faircloth

    Berghahn Books 2013; US$ 34.95

    Following networks of mothers in London and Paris, the author profiles the narratives of women who breastfeed their children to full term, typically a period of several years, as part of an 'attachment parenting' philosophy. These mothers talk about their decision to continue breastfeeding as 'the natural thing to do': 'evolutionarily appropriate',... more...

  • Re-orienting Cuisineby Kwang Ok Kim

    Berghahn Books 2015; US$ 95.00

    Foods are changed not only by those who produce and supply them, but also by those who consume them. Analyzing food without considering changes over time and across space is less meaningful than analyzing it in a global context where tastes, lifestyles, and imaginations cross boundaries and blend with each other, challenging the idea of authenticity.... more...

  • Changing the World, Changing Oneselfby Belinda Davis; Wilfried Mausbach; Martin Klimke; Carla MacDougall

    Berghahn Books 2010; US$ 34.95

    A captivating time, the 60s and 70s now draw more attention than ever. The first substantial work by historians has appeared only in the last few years, and this volume offers an important contribution. These meticulously researched essays offer new perspectives on the Cold War and global relations in the 1960s and 70s through the perspective of the... more...

  • The Modernist Imaginationby Warren Breckman; Peter E. Gordon; A. Dirk Moses; Samuel Moyn

    Berghahn Books 2008; US$ 34.95

    Some of the most exciting and innovative work in the humanities currently takes place at the intersection of intellectual history and critical theory. Just as critical theorists are becoming more aware of the historicity of theory, contemporary practitioners of modern intellectual history are recognizing their potential contributions to theoretical... more...

  • Rethinking the Informal Cityby Felipe HernŠndez; Peter Kellett; Lea Knudsen Allen

    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. However, the terms formal and informal refer not only to the physical aspect of cities but also to their entire socio-political fabric. Informal cities and settlements exceed the structures of order, control... more...

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

    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...

  • Civil Society and Gender Justiceby Karen Hagemann; Sonya Michel; Gunilla Budde

    Berghahn Books 2008; US$ 34.95

    Civil society and civic engagement have increasingly become topics of discussion at the national and international level. The editors of this volume ask, does the concept of "civil society" include gender equality and gender justice? Or, to frame the question differently, is civil society a feminist concept? Conversely, does feminism need the concept... more...

  • The Power of Law in a Transnational Worldby Keebet von Benda-Beckmann; Franz von Benda-Beckmann; Anne Griffiths

    Berghahn Books 2009; US$ 34.95

    How is law mobilized and who has the power and authority to construct its meaning? This important volume examines this question as well as how law is constituted and reconfigured through social processes that frame both its continuity and transformation over time. The volume highlights how power is deployed under conditions of legal pluralism, exploring... more...
