This series explores what anthropology can contribute to the challenges of the 21st century. It is a distinctive contribution to discussions that are often dominated by politics and economics. The books are inspired by traditions of ethnographic research and anthropological analysis to address power and social change while keeping the struggles and stories of people centre stage. The authors offer progressive interventions and critical engagements for informed audiences across the arts, humanities and social sciences. The series editors are Jamie Cross, Senior Lecturer in Social Anthropology at the University of Edinburgh // Holly High, Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Sydney // Joshua O. Reno, Associate Professor of Anthropology at Binghamton University.
