Review

‘Gledhill manages to cover a lot of ground in drawing out the thematic and theoretical focuses of political anthropology, brilliantly giving them life through a wide variety of empirical examples. ... The book will serve as a very good introduction to political anthropology for any student of power and politics.’ --Journal of Peace Research

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Piers Moktan on 2 May 2009
Format: Paperback
The Pluto Press series in Anthropology, Culture and Society are usually of a very high standard, and Gledhill's 'Power and Its Disguises' exemplifies this. I first encountered this text as an undergraduate and found it both engaging and instructive. Years later, it still features in the reading lists of courses I teach in political anthropology. Highly recommended for all students of social and culutral anthropology as well as political science.
