      "Unorthodox Kin is the best ethnography I have read about how an identity category is lived subjectively while also circulating as a charged figure of judgment and desire in the eyes of other people.A beautifully written book, full of empathy and humor."— Rupert Stasch, Fellow and Director of Studies, Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge University. Ethnography, then, named the process of learning what for the anthropologist was a new and different way of talking, thinking, and acting. When the work was done, a monograph was usually written—a report of this exploration into the community's way of life. One could point to that book and say it was an ‘ethnography’ as well.

      I rarely use the word beautiful to describe an ethnography, but this is one such case.I really think this book deserves a wider public outside anthropology; Tsing's insightful observations on the sad fate of Kalimantan should be a lesson to all those who think unfettered free markets and the global economy are the route to salvation/5(9).   A state-of-the-art reference on educational ethnography edited by leading journal editors. This book brings an international group of writers together to offer an authoritative state-of-the-art review of, and critical reflection on, educational ethnography as it is being theorized and practiced today—from rural and remote settings to virtual and visual posts.

Karsten Paerregaard spent a total of one year living with Peruvian. “Made in China is a passionate, engaged ethnography. Pun Ngai provides us with a searing critique of how global capital, with the collusion of the Chinese state, is turning China into the sweatshop of the world. Her ethnography is a moving and angry description of the lives of young migrant women, who are the guts of this : Pun Ngai.
