|Title:||Polanyian meditations on economy and society: a review of ‘Market Society: The Great Transformation Today’|
|Citation:||Dialectical Anthropology, 34(1): 29 - 41, (March 2010)|
|Abstract:||When one considers anthropology’s recent encounter with ‘globalisation’ -- whether understood as a “totalizing” discourse (Tsing 2000), as the dialectical antinomy of localization, as expanding constellations of diasporas and transnational social spaces” (Basch, Glick-Schiller & Szanton 1994), or as webs of legal and illegal trade (Nordstrom 2007) -- it can be profitable to recall the precursors. By this I mean anthropologists who consistently brought a historical-theoretical concern with global processes to bear upon local ethnography, and vice versa. Those that are name-checked in this connection tend to include Marxian theorists such as Eric Wolf, Michael Taussig, Sidney Mintz, and Maurice Godelier, but another important figure was Karl Polanyi.|
