Books Info:

Development Anthropology free pdf "The Anthropology of Development and Globalization" is a collection of readings that provides an unprecedented overview of this field that ranges from the field's classical origins to today's debates about the 'magic' of the free market. It explores the foundations of the anthropology of development, a field newly animated by theories of globalization and transnationalism. It is framed by an encyclopedic introduction that will prove indispensable to students and experts alike. It includes readings ranging from Weber and Marx and Engels to contemporary works on the politics of development knowledge, consumption, environment, gender, international NGO networks, the IMF, campaigns to reform the World Bank, the collapse of socialism, and the limits of 'post-developmentalism'. It fills a crucial gap in the literature by mingling historical, cultural, political, and economic perspectives on development and globalization. It presents a wide range of theoretical approaches and topics.
