Editorial Reviews


"This wide-ranging collection achieves something new and significant for anthropology and for the policy sciences, by bringing the best insights and methods of the anthropology of migration, diaspora and transnationalism to the debate about key public policy issues in the United States, including those of housing, health and public finance. It will therefore bring many different disciplines into a dialogue that tells us something new about how globalization can be harnessed for the purposes of meaningful local change."

-Arjun Appadurai, Goddard Professor of Media, Culture and Communication, New York University

“Once in a generation comes a shift in the practice of anthropology, or perhaps a shift in our perspective on the place of practice in the discipline and in the world.  Here is a harbinger of such change -- the book we have all been waiting for -- taking us to the cutting-edge of an anthropological practice that is ‘glocalized’, hybridized with other disciplines, technology-infused, and on the go 24/7.  A remarkable collection, this volume provides prospective and retrospective views of the agglomerative power of anthropology in the halls of global practice -- influencing policy on global climate change, gendering our knowledge of mobility around the world, explaining the reason for technology “grey markets” in developing nations, revealing the concept of ‘plastic time’ and so much more.  It will challenge what you thought you knew about ‘applied anthropology’.”

—Marietta L. Baba, Dean and Professor, Michigan State University’s College of Social Science
