Books for Review

in Anthropology in Action

Anthropology in Action is always happy to hear from potential reviewers at all stages in their academic careers.

We currently have a number of books awaiting review. If you are interested in reviewing any of the books on the list below, please contact the reviews editor Jennie Morgan (jennie.morgan@york.ac.uk). We welcome reviews of around 600 words for a single book, but we are also keen to include review articles comparing two or more works, for which the word length is negotiable. Please also be aware that we can request recent publications (within the last year) from publishers, so do feel free to let us know of any books that you would like to review within the field of applied anthropology, and we will do our best to get them for you. Also note that publishers routinely send pdf or e-copies of publications rather than hard copies.

Beyond books, we are particularly keen to broaden reviews in future issues to other topical content with relevance to applied anthropology including exhibitions, films, websites, blogs and events. Furthermore, in addition to regular reviews, upcoming issues will feature occasional reviews under the title ‘To see ourselves as others see us’. In these, non-anthropologists will review anthropological books and other works, and discuss the contribution they make in the light of their own perspectives and fields. The impetus for this feature lies in the challenges that applied anthropologists oft en face in explaining and promoting the value of anthropological knowledge outside the discipline. We hope that this invitation to reviewers from outside the discipline will prove stimulating and informative to readers about the responses that anthropological insights receive in the wider world, and will suggest how wider communication of our research could be enhanced.

If you would like to contribute to the occasional reviews feature, or if there is something that you would especially like to review (including content other than books), please do get in touch with us to discuss!
