About this product
- DescriptionThis is a book well worth reading...[it] offers a comprehensive background to the studied society and the complex social relationships at all levels that dominate this rural Greek microcosm. This is an excellent book, of interest to those studying globalization and the integration of markets but also those interested on contemporary Greek society and its entanglements. * Labour History Review Lawrence's ethgraphy is a valuable and intriguing contribution t only to the ethgraphy of Greece but to the anthropology of globalization and politics. The detailed and multi level analysis of social, political and ecomic transformations is both critical and well placed...[It] reminds anthropology of the necessity of a critical, detailed and encompassing political analysis of the interactions and articulations between the contradictory processes, discourses and practices between people and socio-ecomic systems, between people and the formations and transformations of power. * Durham Anthropology Journal Each chapter of Blood and Oranges is densely packed with argumentation that weaves together existing literature with the political ecomic facts on the ground. The treatment is a learned one, rich and erudite in its treatment of the circumA--stances in Argolida, and always embedding those circumA--stances within a broader set of forces and connections. * American Ethlogist A compelling account of the intersection of globalization and neo-racism in a rural Greek community, this book describes the contradictory political and ecomic development of the Greek countryside since its incorporation into the European Union, where increased prosperity and social liberalization have been accompanied by the creation of a vulnerable and marginalized class of immigrant laborers. The author analyzes the paradoxical resurgence of ethnic nationalism and neo-racism that has grown in the wake of European unification and addresses key issues of racism, neoliberalism and nationalism in contemporary anthropology.
- Author BiographyChristopher Lawrence spent 13 months living and working in a group of three Greek villages while carrying out the research for this book. He currently lives in New York City and teaches at The City University of New York and the New York City Department of Education.
