Urging the recognition of potential commonalities among archaeology, history, sociology, and anthropology, the authors propose that historical interpretation should move freely across disciplines, historical study should be held up to the present, and individual lives should be understood as the intersection of biography and history.

Oil is running out. What’s more, its final depletion, once relegated to a misty future, now seems imminent.

This volume focuses on how resources, resource-making, and resource-claiming are entangled with experiences of time.

Finding the book’s analysis tragically prophetic in identifying the key dynamics that have produced the kinds of conflicts recently witnessed globally — as in Bosnia, Kosovo, Rwanda, and Somalia — the editors consider the political origins and cultural meanings of ‘ethnic’ violence in our postcolonial world.

These reputedly isolated people have been portrayed as fiercely engaging in constant warfare over women, status, and revenge. Ferguson argues persuasively that the Yanomami make war not because Western influence is absent, but because it is present.
