Oxford: Berg Publishers. 204 pp. Paperback octavo, very good condition, figures, minor edgewear, bottom corners few pages little creased. A critical look at the latest developments and key issues in anthropological fieldwork. Are reports of the death of conventional fieldwork in anthropology exaggerated? From the social space of a cybercafe to cities in India, the UK and South Africa among others, this book features ethnographic studies that provide new ways of looking at the concepts of 'locality' and 'site'. The nature of 'locality' itself is problematic for both participants and fieldworkers: it must now be maintained and represented in relation to widening and fragmenting social frames and networks. Such developments have raised questions concerning the nature of ethnographic presence and scales of comparison. Rather than taking key fieldwork processes such as globalization and mobility for granted, anthropologists are well-placed to examine and critique the totalizing assumptions behind the notions of 'locality' and 'site'.

Amherst, NY: Prometheus Books. 204 pp. Hardback octavo, dustjacket, very good condition (in very good dustjacket). A provocative tour through 4000 years of Western civilization and its outrageous beliefs about women. In ancient Egypt, for example, the womb was regarded as an entity unto itself capable of "wandering" throughout the body if sexually unfulfilled, crowding the other organs and causing tissue damage, suffocation, and a variety of illnesses. These and similar ideas became entwined in centuries of medical ignorance and religious superstition. But this is not an exclusively "ancient" or "primitive" phenomenon: As late as the 19th century, many doctors opposed the use of anesthesia in childbirth because women had been condemned by God to "bring forth children in sorrow".
