Product Description


"This is an important book that readers of "Technology and Culture "should find both challenging and rewarding. . . ."
--Marcia-Anne Dobres, "Technology and Culture"

"For museum scholars, careful consideration of materiality--and of the ideologies of the material world conveyed by museum practice--is imperative. This volume will be an important resource for such a project."
--Jessica Cattelino, "Museum Anthropology"

"A] lively volume. . . . This book makes the reader engage with a range of old and new arguments on materiality and pushes their boundaries in a way that makes it important reading for a broad anthropological public."
--Francesca Merlan, "Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute"

"Throughout the chapters, the analyses are of high quality. The authors know their cases and present them well. At the same time, they connect to the broader issues the volume intends to raise and to the rising literature on 'materiality. . .'"
--Peter Wagner, "American Journal of Sociology"

"A milestone collection. Of all of the recent works on material culture available, this is the one that exposes the complete range of perspectives and theoretical strategies that the most noted scholars are trying out and the interdisciplinary connections and alliances that are shaping the field."--George Marcus, Rice University

"There have been many recent stabs at the idea of materiality. With both authority and intellectual generosity, these anthropologists and their colleagues take us beyond 'things' and 'objects' to ask about concrete presences, qualities, surfaces, and the formation of phenomena. A magisterial and highly original collection."--Marilyn Strathern, University of Cambridge

From the Back Cover

"This is first-class scholarship: lively, consequential, engaging, informed, and lucid. Daniel Miller and his colleagues explore--with imagination, ethnographic insight, and remarkable clarity--a range of related issues central to current debates within and beyond cultural anthropology."--Donald Brenneis, University of California, Santa Cruz
