Product description


[A] stimulating and eloquently written book that highlights, with subtle examples, the complex interplay between fixity and fluidity in discourses and practices of identification. Source: Anthropos

In Corsican Fragments, Matei Candea takes the theoretical problematic of difference to motivate a set of ethnographic questions and challenges related to both the context of life in a village on the island and the process of fieldwork and ‘enfielding’ of the author. . . 20.1 Feb. 2012 Source: Social Anthropology

It is hard to let go of this book, if only because its structure will lead many readers from the very last page back to the beginning again to contemplate anew what they have just read. Source: H-France

Corsica has long been a destination of otherness . . . anthropologists in search of cultural difference within a perceived European tradition. Matei Candea presents this book situated in Corsica as an exploration of anthropological ways of coming to grips with the fragmentary knowledge gained from fieldwork in a region long preoccupied with its disputed identities.March 2014 Source: American Anthropologist


A book of extraordinary brilliance, compelling honesty and logic, and rich insight. Author: Michael Herzfeld
