Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book takes up burning problems in new ways by someone deeply versed in his field with a sensitivity to nuance and detail no less than to an acute sense of urgency. The reality to which most of the essays are dedicated is one never or rarely discussed by anthropologists, namely East Germany and neighboring states, and he does this with an eye open to recent anthropology and political theory. The approach he adopts has his own signature and is a major reason for the strength of this book, responding to new anxieties concerning social order, ethnicity, violence, and the study of society, stressing a new integration of anthropological study with urban and global force." -- Michael Taussig, Columbia University
"In my opinion, no one working in the anthropology of Europe has the sort of edgy insight of Borneman which draws you into the ethnography. This is not only because of the quandaries of the German situation, but also the distinctive curiosity of Borneman himself." -- George E. Marcus, Rice University
Subversions of International Order is an important and enjoyable work It is methodologically and theoretically provoking. H-Net Reviews (H-SAE)" --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
