    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 69.95

    Politicians and academics alike have made globalization the key reference point for interpreting the 1990s. For many, globalization threatens both community and the nation-state. It appears to represent forces beyond human control. Living the Global City documents globalization's impact on everyday lives by drawing on research rather than rhetoric... more...

  • Reframing Pilgrimageby Simon Coleman; John Eade

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 45.95

    Reframing Pilgrimage argues that sacred travel is just one of the twenty-first century's many forms of cultural mobility. The contributors consider the meanings of pilgrimage in Christian, Mormon, Hindu, Islamic and Sufi traditions, as well as in secular contexts, and they create a new theory of pilgrimage as a form of voluntary displacement. This... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 54.95

    Although research on contemporary pilgrimage has expanded considerably since the early 1990s, the conversation has largely been dominated by Anglophone researchers in anthropology, ethnology, sociology, and religious studies from the United Kingdom, the United States, France and Northern Europe. This volume challenges the hegemony of Anglophone scholarship... more...

  • Pilgrimage, Politics and Place-Making in Eastern Europeby John Eade; Mario Kati?

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Since the beginning of the anthropology of pilgrimage, scant attention has been paid to pilgrimage and pilgrim places in central, eastern and south-eastern Europe. Seeking to address such a deficit, this book brings together scholars from central, eastern and south-eastern Europe to explore the crossing of borders in terms of the relationship between... more...

  • New Pathways in Pilgrimage Studiesby Dionigi Albera; John Eade

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Although there has been a massive increase in the volume of pilgrimage research and publications, traditional Anglophone scholarship has been dominated by research in Western Europe and North America. In their previous edited volume, International Perspectives on Pilgrimage Studies (Routledge, 2015), Albera and Eade sought to expand the theoretical,... more...

  • Pilgrimage and Political Economyby Simon Coleman; John Eade

    Berghahn Books 2018; US$ 29.95

    Pilgrimage has always had a tendency to follow – and sometimes create – trade routes. This volume explores how wider factors behind transnational and global mobility have impacted on pilgrimage activity across the world, and examines the ways in which pilgrimage relates to migration, diaspora, and political cooperation or conflict across nation-states.... more...
