Overview

Economic anthropology is defined as the description and analysis of economic life using an anthropological perspective. Anthropologists from the US, Europe, Japan, and Australia offer guidance to working in the field for readers who have not encountered it before, or who indeed may know little about anthropology itself. Within sections on orientations, elements, circulation, integrations, issues, and region, they consider such topics as anthropology, political economy, and the world-system theory; one anthropologist's view of money; one-way economic transfers; economies of ethnicity;; households and their markets in the Andes; the uneasy relationship between anthropology and development; and post-socialist societies.
