Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Europe in the Anthropological Imagination is a provocative, reflective book about how American anthropologists study Europe. But, since anthropology has traditionally been defined as a study of the non-western, exotic Other; an anthropological study of Europe would seem to be a misnomer. In a larger sense, then, it offers insights into the manner in which ideas emerge and evolve within a discipline. This book offers a history of the "anthropology of Europe" in fourteen essays written by twelve American anthropologists who have each studied Europe for more than twenty years, yielding case studies of anthropology in a range of European countries and regions. It discusses themes in the anthropology of Europe: the relationship of anthropology to other disciplines; defining center and periphery; the study of migration; urban anthropology; and how to study Europe at regional, national, and supra-national levels. A valuable book for any reader who wishes a greater understanding of Europe and essential for any professional doing business in Europe.
