Elite Cultures by Cris Shore
Book DescriptionDrawing on a diverse, comparative ethnographic literature, this new volume examines the intimate spaces and cultural practices of those elites who occupy positions of power and authority across a variety of different settings. Using ethnographic case studies from a wide range of geographical areas, including Mexico, Peru, Amazonia, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Europe, North America and Africa, the contributors explore the inner worlds of meaning and practice that define and sustain elite identities. They also provide insights into the cultural mechanisms that maintain elite status, and into the complex ways that elite groups relate to, and are embedded within, wider social and historical processes.

Books By Author Cris Shore
Building Europe, Hardback (June 2000)
This sociological study examines the process of European integration. It reveals that there is a subculture of corruption within the institutions of Europe, and that its problems are largely a result of the way the EU itself is constituted and run.
Anthropology of Policy, Hardback (July 1997)
This book argues that policy has become an increasingly central concept in the organisation of contemporary societies and that it now impinges on all areas of life so that it is virtually impossible to ignore or escape its influence.
Anthropology of Europe, Paperback (August 1996)» View all books by Cris Shore
An anthropological study of Europe post-1989. The contributors examine the social, cultural and political implications of European integration, with particular emphasis on changing European identities, concepts of citizenship and levels of participation.
