Anthropologists Inside Organisations: South Asian Case Studies responds to a shift in anthropology over the past decade towards working with and studying organisations. This book brings together seven fresh case studies on how anthropologists have negotiated the issues related to interacting with organisations. While providing examples of how research has been conducted inside and with organisations, the collection also offers analyses of the methodological issues that researchers face.

All the case studies in this volume are based on South Asia or South Asians. With an emphasis on methodology, these will prove to be a significant source of information for students, researchers and academics working in the areas of development studies, socio-cultural anthropology, public health, education, sociology, political science and social work.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This edited work provides examples as to how the research has been conducted inside as well as with the organisations. It also highlights the problems that the researchers come across as they go along their interactions with the various respondents....The book is useful because these researchers have given valuable tips how to mitigate these obstacles and put forth a research work that would be valued for its depth... This work is informative as it offers suggestions by researchers themselves who have actively been involved in research.

-- The Tribune

This book will be useful for not only social scientists interested in development but also practitioners of human development as well as scholars and students interested in the policies of development.... The aim of the book is to substantiate the change in the nature and scope of social anthropology as it takes on the study of the `culture' of formal organizations as a new frontier in problematising societies.

-- Journal of South Asian Development
