A Companion to Urban Anthropology, Hardback Book



A Companion to Urban Anthropology BLACKWELL COMPANIONS TO ANTHROPOLOGY A Companion to Urban Anthropology "The city is becoming the basic currency of human - and non-human - life: a pile of interconnections which makes a series of difficult wholes.

This volume navigates the anthropology of this medium with the greatest aplomb." Nigel Thrift, University of Warwick A Companion to Urban Anthropology presents original essays on central concepts in urban anthropology and ethnography.

Featuring contributions from more than 25 leading international scholars in urban studies, the readings cover a wide variety of topics.

Each essay explores a key phenomenon and is grounded in the author's original research along with findings of other urbanists.

Classic issues such as built structures and urban planning, community, markets, and race lead to emergent areas of study including borders, sexualities, nature, extralegality, and resilience and sustainability.

A Companion to Urban Anthropology offers revealing insights into the complex forces that continue to shape the urban experience.
