The relationship between anthropologists' ethnographic investigations and the lived social worlds in which these originate is a fundamental issue for anthropology. Where some claim that only native voices may offer authentic accounts of culture and hence that ethnographers are only ever interpreters of it, others point out that anthropologists are, themselves, implanted within specific cultural contexts which generate particular kinds of theoretical discussions. The contributors to this volume reject the premise that ethnographer and informant occupy different and incommensurable "cultural worlds." Instead they investigate the relationship between culture, context, and anthropologists' models and accounts in new ways. In doing so, they offer fresh insights into this key area of anthropological research.

Conflicting parties worldwide increasingly use the Internet in a strategic way, and struggles carried out on a local level achieve a new dimension. This new kind of medialization results in a conflict's expansion into global cyberspace. Based on ethnographic research on the online activities of Christian and Muslim actors in the Moluccan conflict (1999–2003), this study investigates processes of identity construction, community building and evolving conflict dynamics on the Internet. In contributing to conflict and Internet research, this study paves the way for a new cyberanthropology. A newly added epilogue outlines the directions in which the situation in the Moluccas has continued and discusses the advances and developments of theoretical and methodological concerns presented in the 2005 German edition.

Migrant experiences accentuate general aspects of the human condition. Therefore, this volume explores migrant's movements not only as geographical movements from here to there but also as movements that constitute an embodied, cognitive, and existential experience of living "in between" or on the "borderlands" between differently figured life-worlds. Focusing on memories, nostalgia, the here-and-now social experiences of daily living, and the hopes and dreams for the future, the volume demonstrates how all interact in migrants' and refugees' experience of identity and quest for well-being.

In Portugal between 2005 and 2010, "modernization through technology" was the major political motto used to develop and improve the country's peripheral and backward condition. This study reflects on one of the resulting, specific aspects of this trend-the implementation of public video surveillance. The in-depth ethnography provides evidence of how the political construction of security and surveillance as a strategic program actually conceals intricate institutional relationships between political decision-makers and common citizens. Essentially, the detailed account of the major actors, as well as their roles and motivations, serves to explain phenomena such as the confusion between objective data and subjective perceptions or the lack of communication between parties, which as this study argues, underlies the idiosyncrasies and fragilities of Portugal's still relatively young democratic system.

في كتاب سرقة التاريخ يبني جاك غودي على عمله السابق الخاص به ليوسع إلى مدى أبعد نقدَه المؤثر تأثيراً شديداً والموجه إلى ما يرى أنه انحيازات مركزية أوروبية، أو غربية، متفشية، تنحاز إليها كثير جداً من الكتابات التاريخية الغربية، و«السرقة» الناتجة عن ذلك التي قام بها الغرب لإنجازات الثقافات الأخرى في اختراع (وبشكل ملحوظ) الديمقراطية، والرأسمالية، والفردية، والحب. وكتاب سرقة التاريخ يناقش عدداً من المنظرين بالتفصيل، ومن جملتهم ماركس، وويبر، ونوربرت إلياس. ويشتبك بإعجاب نقدي مع مؤرخين غربيين من أمثال فيرناند برودل، وموسى فينلي، وبيري أندرسون. وتثار أسئلة عديدة عن المناهج المطبقة في هذه المناقشات. ويقترح الأستاذ الدكتور غودي تطبيق منهجية مقارنة جديدة من أجل تحليل التفاعل بين الثقافات المتعددة، منهجية تعطي أساساً أكثر حنكة بكثير من أجل تقييم النتائج التاريخية المتشعبة، وتحل محل الخلافات البسيطة القديمة العهد بين الشرق وبين الغرب. وسوف يقرأ كتاب سرقة التاريخ جمهور واسع من المؤرخين، وعلماء الإنسان، والمنظرين الاجتماعيين. جاك غودي: واحد من أبرز علماء علم الإنسان في العالم، وهو الأستاذ الدكتور الفخري لعلم الإنسان الاجتماعي في جامعة كيمبردج والزميل في كلية سينت جون.

موضوع هذا العمل هو حزب الله، الحزب السياسي الأكبر والأبرز في لبنان، وربما الحركة الإسلامية الأشهر في العالم، وقد ساءت سمعة الحزب بفعل تورطه المزعوم في اختطاف أكثر من ثمانين غربيّا طوال ثمانينيات القرن العشرين، بمن فيهم رهائن بارزون مثل موفد رئيس أساقفة كانتربري، تيري ويت، ويقع الكتاب في ثمانية فصول: (التكيف السياسي والعنف في الدول غير الإسلامية، الدولة الإسلامية والديمقراطية، مفهوم ولاية الفقيه، الشمولية الإسلامية والهوية الوطنية، الصراع مع الغرب، مقاومة الاحتلال الإسرائيلي، معاداة الصهيونية وإسرائيل، ومعاداة اليهودية).
