Dear Everyone,

I have been "chatting" (electronically, of course) with another
anthropologist in Caracas, Venezuela. Both of us got around to the
fact that we have gotten out of touch with the latest and greatest
books/works in anthropology of the last five years due to extended
fieldwork and in the case of Caracas, the horrible financial crisis
impacting everything, including the publishing houses. He thought
that this would be a good question to put to the list, and I agree.
Are you game? If so, then send what you think are the
names/citations/titles of the most important published works (in all
four fields, and even borrowed stuff, eg, from sociology, philosophy,
etc.) to have appeared in the last five years. I will keep track
and then sum up the results and post them to the list. And posting
your replies to anthro-l (rather than just me) will be more helpful to
Thanks to all ahead of time....
