“Ulf Hannerz takes readers behind-the-scenes with wit, insight, political acuity, and a good measure of humanity. His observations about the frequent privileging of English in today’s ‘global discipline’ and its consequences are especially sharp.” – Virginia R. Dominguez, President, American Anthropological Association, Edward William and Jane Marr Gutgsell Professor of Anthropology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Co-Founder and Consulting Director, International Forum for U.S. Studies
“Widely admired as a leading anthropologist of globalisation, Hannerz … shows how anthropology came to be a central intellectual discipline, and why it should stay that way in a globalised world where the local refuses to be beaten into submission.” – Thomas Hylland Eriksen, Professor of Social Anthropology, University of Oslo
