Description - Routes by James Clifford
When culture makes itself at home in motion, where does an anthropologist stand? This collection of works aims to be a moving picture of a world that doesn't stand still, that reveals itself in airport lounges and car parks. Travel and its difficult companion, translation, are taken as openings into a complex modernity. The author contemplates a world ever more connected, yet not homogeneous, expanding across colonization, capitalist expansion, immigration, labour mobility and tourism. The author's concerns are with struggles to displace stereotypes, to recognize divergent histories, and to sustain "postcolonial" and "tribal" identities in contexts of domination and globalization.
