How far is ethnicity a result of cultural differences, and how much is it in fact dependent on the practical use of, and belief in, such differences? Thomas Hylland Eriksen demonstrates that far from being an immutable property of groups, ethnicity is a dynamic and shifting aspect of social relationships. Drawing on a wide range of classic and recent studies, Eriksen examines the relationship between ethnicity, class, gender and nationhood in a lucid and comprehensive manner." "A core text for all students of social anthropology and related subjects, this third edition of Ethnicity and Nationalism is indispensable to anyone seriously interested in understanding ethnic phenomena. New topics covered include cultural property rights, the role of genetics in the public understanding of identification, the commercialisation of identity, and the significance of the internet."--BOOK JACKET+-+4652580925159112ocn050811566file20010.39Eriksen, Thomas HyllandTyranny of the moment fast and slow time in the information age"The turn of the millennium is characterized by exponential growth in everything related to communication - from the internet and email to air traffic. 'The Tyranny of the Moment' deals with some of the most perplexing paradoxes of this new information age. Who would have expected that apparently time-saving technology results in time being scarcer than ever? And has this seemingly limitless access to information led to confusion rather than enlightenment? Thomas Eriksen argues that slow time - private periods where we are able to think and correspond coherently without interuption - is now one of the most precious resources we have, and it is becoming a major political issue. Since we are now theoretically 'online' 24 hours a day, we must fight for the right to be unavailable - the right to live and think more slowly. It is not only that working hours have become longer - Eriksen also shows how the logic of this new information technology has, in the space of just a few years, permeated every area of our lives. This is equally true for those living in poorer parts of the globe usually depicted as outside the reaches of the information age, as well as those in the West. Exploring phenomena such as the world wide web, wap telephones, multi-channel television and email, 'The Tyranny of the Moment' examines this new, non-linear and fragmented way of communicating to reveal the effect it has on working conditions in the new economy, changes in family life and, ultimately, personal identity. Eriksen argues that a culture lacking a sense of its past, and therefore of its future, is effectively static. Although solutions are suggested, he demonstrates that there is no easy way out."--BOOK JACKET+-+3022680925154411ocn053977946file20030.35Globalisation studies in anthropology+-+2405780925140120ocn666933980file20010.53Eriksen, Thomas HyllandA history of anthropologyHistory"This book covers the entire history of social and cultural anthropology in a single volume. Beginning with a summary of the discipline in the nineteenth century, exploring major figures such as Morgan and Tylor, it goes on to provide a comprehensive overview of the discipline in the twentieth century. The bulk of the book is devoted to themes and controversies characteristic of post First World War anthropology, from structural functionalism via structuralism to hermeneutics, cultural ecology, discourse analysis and, most recently, globalization and postmodernism. The authors emphasise throughout the need to see changes in the discipline in a wider social, political and intellectual context."--BOOK JACKET+-+K03868092510998ocn658045072file20100.53A world of insecurity anthropological perspectives on human securityCase studiesHuman security is a key element in the measure of well-being, and a hot topic in anthropology and development studies. A World of Insecurity outlines a new approach to the subject.The contributors expose a contradiction at the heart of conventional accounts of what constitutes human security, namely that without taking non-material considerations such as religion, ethnicity and gender into account, discussions of human security, academically and in practical terms, are incomplete, inconclusive and deeply flawed. A variety of compelling case studies indicate that, in fact, material security alone cannot adequately explain or fully account for human activity in a range of different settings, and exposed to a variety of different threats.This forceful book will expand and deepen the entire concept of human security, in the process endowing it with political relevance. It is an essential read for students of development studies and anthropology+-+0934780925103814ocn613362281file20050.53Eriksen, Thomas HyllandEngaging anthropology the case for a public presenceHistory"While showcasing the intellectual power of anthropology Thomas Hylland, Eriksen takes the anthropological community to task for its unwillingness to engage more proactively with the media in a wide range of current debates. If anthropology matters as a key tool with which to understand modern society beyond the ivory towers of academia, why are so few anthropologists willing to come forward in times of national or global crisis? Eriksen argues that anthropology needs to rediscover the art of narrative and abandon and analysis and, more provocatively, anthropologists need to lose their fear of plunging into the vexed issues modern societies present." "Engaging Anthropology makes an impassioned plea for positioning anthropology as the universal intellectual discipline. Eriksen has provided the wake-up call we were all awaiting."--BOOK JACKET+-+5915570936103310ocn666932049file20040.47Eriksen, Thomas HyllandWhat is anthropology?Eriksen shows how anthropology is a revolutionary way of thinking about the human world.

However, arguing that variation is as characteristic of globalization as standardization, the book stresses the necessity for a bottom-up, comparative analysis. Distinguishing between the cultural, political, economic and ecological aspects of globalization, the book highlights the implications of globalization for people's everyday lives. Throughout, the discussion is illustrated with wide-ranging case material. Chapter summaries and a guide to further reading underline the book's concern to clarify this most complex and influential of ideas." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/enhancements/fy0727/2007018029-d.html+-+08705709362268ocn039955585book19980.86Eriksen, Thomas HyllandCommon denominators : ethnicity, nation-building, and compromise in MauritiusThis book seeks to enhance comparative understanding of ethnicity, to refine theories of nationalism, and to contribute to ongoing debates on multiculturalism, identity politics and creolization+-+290482403620110ocn028148563book19920.86Eriksen, Thomas HyllandUs and them in modern societies : ethnicity and nationalism in Mauritius, Trinidad and beyond+-+46525809251718ocn123968978book20070.86Eriksen, Thomas HyllandFlag, nation and symbolism in Europe and AmericaCase studiesAlthough the symbolic and political importance of flags has often been mentioned by scholars of nationalism, there are few in-depth studies of the significance of flags for national identities.

In this foundational text about the development of the global political economy, Eric R. Wolf challenges the long-held anthropological notion that non-European cultures and peoples were isolated and static entities before the advent of European colonialism and imperialism.
