Locality and Belonging provides an international overview of the close relationship between territory and cultural identity. The issue of 'belonging' has long been recognized as crucial to the study of identity within anthropology. Here, contributors from Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, France and the UK present rigorous case studies of 'belonging' from the UK, South Africa, Argentina, Zanzibar, Amazonia, Indonesia and West Africa. Among the themes explored are:
* space, memory and ethnicity
* the mnemonic use of objects
* mythologies of football and history
* use of 'natural features' of the environment
* nationhood and post-colonial identity making.
