‘Narotzky is particularly compelling in her discussion of the relation between the counted and
unaccounted as it enters practices and ideology in the informal economy, family business and home life' Anthropology Today (RAI)
Using an historical perspective, Narotzky highlights the interdependent nature of the contemporary world economy, and includes case studies of Western societies. She gives special emphasis to current issues such as the anthropology of work, the informal economy, and the cultures of industrialisation.
