Editorial Reviews

Review

“A truly unusual and provocative first book, written with grace, verve, and clarity. Akhil Gupta places rural life in India in the context of a sharp and informed view of India’s larger political economy.”—Arjun Appadurai, University of Chicago


“This is a work of prodigious, exacting anthropological scholarship, which represents the best in combining traditional practices of ethnography with new theoretical influences.”—George E. Marcus, Rice University


"Many have despaired of the possibility of studying the vast forces and conditions of the contemporary world—globalization, postcoloniality, late capitalism—through ethnographic methods that continue to focus on the specific and the ‘local.’ Akhil Gupta has provided us with a brilliant example of how this can be done. In the process he has rewritten the very categories of the global and the local, and has done so within a prose of extraordinary lucidity and power."—Sherry Ortner, Columbia University
