Subjective Lives and Economic Transformations in Mongolia - Life in the Gap
Publisher: UCL Press
This is the first book to document how women are formed as subjects in
the extractivist-economy of Mongolia. It manages to articulate very current
theoretical themes (e.g. temporality) with larger, long-standing social
scientific questions such as subjectivity.
structure of the manuscript is easily accessible and the prose is clear,
making this a work that would be appropriate for both undergraduate students
in anthropology and more advanced readers with expertise in economic
anthropology or, beyond the discipline, an interest in the region.The book does what anthropologists do
best, namely, tell a story about 'big' political and economic processes,
phenomena and events through the lens of local lives.
