An eloquent, even haunting narrative of the relationships between colonial explorers/scientists and their native collaborators that makes vivid the theme of colonial intimacy.

Cultural Anthropology
Between One and One Another
Michael Jackson

A lively, fascinating exploration of the interplay between being part of the lives of others and being apart from them.
Robert Desjarlais, author of Counterplay

Michael Jackson extends his path-breaking work in existential anthropology by focusing on the interplay between two modes of human existence: that of participating in other peoples lives and that of turning inward to ones self. Grounding his discussion in the subtle shifts between being acted upon and taking action, Jackson shows how the historical complexities and particularities found in human interactions reveal the dilemmas, conflicts, cares, and concerns that shape all of our lives.

The Nature of Race

How Scientists Think and Teach about Human Difference
Ann Morning

What do Americans think race means? What determines ones raceappearance, ancestry, genes, or culture? How do education, government, and business influence our views on race? To unravel these complex questions, Ann Morning takes a close look at how scientists are influencing ideas about race through teaching and textbooks. Drawing from in-depth interviews with biologists, anthropologists, and undergraduates, Morning explores different conceptions of racefinding for example, that while many sociologists now assume that race is a social invention or construct, anthropologists and biologists are far from such a consensus.

Sex Cells
The Medical Market for Eggs and Sperm
Rene Almeling

A compelling analysis of contemporary markets for eggs and sperm.

Viviana A. Zelizer, author of Economic Lives

Unimaginable until the twentieth century, the clinical practice of transferring eggs and sperm from body to body is now the basis of a bustling market. In Sex Cells, Rene Almeling provides an inside look at how egg agencies and sperm banks do business. Although both men and women are usually drawn to donation for financial reasons, Almeling finds that clinics encourage sperm donors to think of the payments as remuneration for an easy job. Women receive more money but are urged to regard egg donation in feminine terms, as the ultimate gift from one woman to another.

Susan Hegeman

This insightful book tracks the concept of culture across a range of scholarly disciplines and much of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuriesyears that saw the emergence of new fields and subfields (cultural studies, the new cultural history, literary new historicism, as well as ethnic and minority studies) and came to be called the cultural turn. Since the 1990s, however, the idea of culture has fallen out of scholarly favor. Susan Hegeman engages with a diversity of disciplines, including anthropology, literary studies, sociology, philosophy, psychology, and political science, to historicize the rise and fall of the cultural turn and to propose ways that culture may still be a vital concept in the global present.

Our Bodies Belong to God
Organ Transplants, Islam, and the Struggle for Human Dignity in Egypt
Sherine Hamdy

Why has Egypt, a pioneer of organ transplantation, been reluctant to pass a national organ transplant law for more than three decades? This book analyzes the national debate over organ transplantation in Egypt as it has unfolded during a time of major social and political transformationincluding mounting dissent against a brutal regime, the privatization of health care, advances in science, the growing gap between rich and poor, and the Islamic revival. Sherine Hamdy recasts bioethics as a necessarily political project as she traces the moral positions of patients in need of new tissues and organs, doctors uncertain about whether transplantation is a good medical or religious practice, and Islamic scholars.

The Powerful Ephemeral

Everyday Healing in an Ambiguously Islamic Place
Carla Bellamy

The violent partitioning of British India along religious lines and ongoing communalist aggression have compelled Indian citizens to contend with the notion that an exclusive, fixed religious identity is fundamental to self hood.

In this accessible ethnography, Carla Bellamy traces the long-term healing processes of Muslim and Hindu devotees of a complex of dargahs in northwestern India.

Making Chastity Sexy
The Rhetoric of Evangelical Abstinence Campaigns
Christine J. Gardner

Even though they are immersed in sex-saturated society, millions of teens are pledging to remain virgins until their wedding night. How are evangelical Christians persuading young people to wait until marriage? Christine J. Gardner looks closely at the language of the chastity movement and discovers a savvy campaign that uses sex to sell abstinence. Drawing from interviews with evangelical leaders and teenagers, she examines the strategy to shift from a negative just say no approach to a positive one: just say yes to great sex within marriage.

Archaeology & Biological Anthropology

Across Atlantic Ice
The Origin of Americas Clovis Culture
Dennis J. Stanford and Bruce A. Bradley

Foreword by Michael B. Collins Who were the first humans to inhabit North America? According to the now familiar story, mammal hunters entered the continent some 12,000 years ago via a land bridge that spanned the Bering Sea. The presence of these early New World people was established by distinctive stone tools belonging to the Clovis culture. But are the Clovis tools Asian in origin? Drawing from original archaeological analysis, paleoclimatic research, and genetic studies, noted archaeologists Dennis J. Stanford and Bruce A. Bradley challenge the old narrative and, in the process, counter traditionaland often subjectiveapproaches to archaeological testing for historical relatedness.
Dennis J. Stanford is Curator of Archaeology and Director of the Paleoindian Program at the Smithsonians National Museum of Natural History. Bruce A. Bradley is Senior Lecturer in Archaeology at the University of Exeter and Director of its Experimental Archaeology Programme.

The Fossil Chronicles

How Two Controversial Discoveries Changed Our View of Human Evolution
Dean Falk

Two discoveries of early human relatives, one in 1924 and one in 2003, radically changed scientific thinking about our origins. Dean Falk, a pioneer in the field of human brain evolution, offers this fast-paced insiders account of these discoveries, the behind-the-scenes politics embroiling the scientists who found and analyzed them, and the academic and religious controversies they generated.

Archaeology & Biological Anthropology

Early Mesoamerican Social Transformations
Archaic and Formative Lifeways in the Soconusco Region
Edited by Richard G. Lesure

Between 3500 and 500 bc, the social landscape of ancient Mesoamerica was completely transformed. At the beginning of this period, the mobile lifeways of a sparse population were oriented toward hunting and gathering. Three millennia later, protourban communities teemed with people. These essays by leading Mesoamerican archaeologists examine developments of the era as they unfolded in the Soconusco region along the Pacific coast of Mexico and Guatemala. This volume presents a wealth of new research on an early time period from a very important region. Its importance cannot be underestimated.Terry G. Powis, Kennesaw State University
