An Anthropology of Economic Regulation in Central Africa.
Princeton University Press
27. September 2004 - kartoniert - 256 Seiten
"I very much enjoyed reading this book, both for its originality and the seminal way its author links vivid ethnography to sophisticated theoretical reflections. Janet Roitman worked in a very special area, the Chad basin, which is dominated by ongoing civil war, an almost complete informalization of the economy, and spectacular forms of smuggling. She admirably succeeds in showing that even in such an apparently chaotic context new patterns of control and regularity emerge that give terms like 'economy' a special tenor. The prose is highly accessible, not only because of its clarity of style but also because the author, in a very evocative way, constantly returns to the realities she examined during her fieldwork."--Peter Geschiere, University of Amsterdam, author of "The Modernity of Witchcraft""Janet Roitman's is a major and original voice. An unusually innovative, indeed subversive anthropology of economy and state, her book contains fascinating debates and engagements with a wide variety of issues that arise from the historical ethnography of an African region but are clearly of general interest."--Arjun Appadurai, New School University, author of "Modernity at Large"

Janet Roitman is a research fellow at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in Paris.
"The whole book is a sophisticated essay on how to bring such an area and problematic into focus: the question of regulatory authority in places where it has never been self-evident. As such, it opens up some very important analytical issues, not only for African studies but also for an anthropology of emergent economies worldwide."--Jane I.Guyer, International Journal of African Historical Studies
