Description - Global Assemblages by Aihwa Ong

Provides an exciting approach to some of the most contentious issues in discussions around globalization--bioscientific research, neoliberalism, governance--from the perspective of the "anthropological" problems they pose; in other words, in terms of their implications for how individual and collective life is subject to technological, political, and ethical reflection and intervention. * Offers a ground--breaking approach to central debates about globalization with chapters written by leading scholars from across the social sciences. * Examines a range of phenomena that articulate broad structural transformations: technoscience, circuits of exchange, systems of governance, and regimes of ethics or values. * Investigates these phenomena from the perspective of the "anthropological" problems they pose. * Covers a broad range of geographical areas: Africa, the Middle East, East and South Asia, North America, South America, and Europe. * Grapples with a number of empirical problems of popular and academic interest -- from the organ trade, to accountancy, to pharmaceutical research, to neoliberal reform.
