Melhuus (social anthropology, U. of Oslo, Norway) et al. assemble 11 chapters drawn from two workshops, "Ethnographic Practice in the Present" and "Ethnography: The Costs of Success?" held at the eighth biennial conference of the European Association of Social Anthropologists in Vienna, Austria, in 2004. The workshops aimed to assess the position of ethnography within the discipline of sociocultural anthropology and the methodological implications of practice in fieldwork, as well as the use of ethnography in other disciplines in the social and human sciences. Anthropologists from Europe and the US consider ethnography in interdisciplinary contexts such as history, linguistics, psychoanalysis, ethnology, corporate social responsibility, female circumcision, AIDS responses, and international airports. They also discuss the ethnics of the "new" ethnography, the role of memory, reconstructing the past, and the challenges of mobility. The introduction and one of the chapters have been previously published in different versions elsewhere. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
