What People are Saying About This

Amitav Ghosh

This is a book that is as rich in human warmth as it is technically innovative.

New York Review of Books

A loosely organized group of mountain people in southeastern Kalimantan ... [is the topic of Tsing's fieldwork in what is] perhaps the most detailed and certainly the most self-conscious examination of marginalization yet to appear.
