  • Extreme Heritage Managementby Godfrey Baldacchino

    Berghahn Books 2011; US$ 120.00

    Conflicting and competing claims over the actual and imagined use of land and seascapes are exacerbated on islands with high population density. The management of culture and heritage is particularly tested in island environments where space is finite and the population struggles to preserve cultural and natural assets in the face of the demands of... more...

  • Holistic Anthropologyby David Parkin; Stanley Ulijaszek

    Berghahn Books 2007; US$ 29.95

    Given the broad reach of anthropology as the science of humankind, there are times when the subject fragments into specialisms and times when there is rapprochement. Rather than just seeing them as reactions to each other, it is perhaps better to say that both tendencies co-exist and that it is very much a matter of perspective as to which is dominant... more...

  • Creating a Nation with Clothby Ping-Ann Addo

    Berghahn Books 2013; US$ 34.95

    Tongan women living outside of their island homeland create and use hand-made, sometimes hybridized, textiles to maintain and rework their cultural traditions in diaspora. Central to these traditions is an ancient concept of homeland or nation- fonua -which Tongans retain as an anchor for modern nation-building. Utilizing the concept of the "multi-territorial... more...

  • Introductory Readings in Anthropologyby Hilary Callan; Brian Street; Simon Underdown

    Berghahn Books 2013; US$ 34.95

    Anthropology seeks to understand the roots of our common humanity, the diversity of cultures and world-views, and the organisation of social relations and practices. As a method of inquiry it embraces an enormous range of topics, and as a discipline it covers a multitude of fields and themes, as shown in this selection of original writings. As an... more...

  • Girlhood and the Politics of Placeby Claudia Mitchell; Carrie Rentschler

    Examining context-specific conditions in which girls live, learn, work, play, and organize deepens the understanding of place-making practices of girls and young women worldwide.

  • 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.

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...
