Books By Author Michael Herzfeld

On the Social Life of Postsocialism by Michael Herzfeld On the Social Life of Postsocialism, Paperback (December 2009)

Pathbreaking studies of the postsocialist transition

Evicted from Eternity by Michael Herzfeld Evicted from Eternity, Paperback (May 2009)

Focuses on Rome's historic Monti district and the wrenching dislocation caused by rapid economic, political, and social change. This book tells the story of the gentrification of Monti - once the architectural home of a community of artisans and shopkeepers now displaced by an invasion of rapacious real estate speculators, and corrupt officials.

Cultural Intimacy by Michael Herzfeld Cultural Intimacy, Paperback (January 2005)

Anthropological interest in the nation-state and nationalism has recently intensified. This is an updated second edition of a seminal book partly responsible for this shift. It brings this leading thinker's ideas to a fresh audience.

Anthropology by Michael Herzfeld Anthropology, Paperback (December 2000)

Not a textbook in the ordinary sense, this work offers a vision of how anthropology - a discipline that operates through intimate knowledge of local societies - can offer vastly increased understanding of society and culture even in this age of mass communication.
