In her new book, distinguished anthropologist June Nash tackles the critical question of how people of diverse cultures confront the common problems that arise with global integration. She reveals these impacts on an urban U.S. community, on Mandalay rice cultivators, as well as on Mayan and Andean peasants and miners. Her decades-long research in these communities provides a valuable resource for anthropologists and other social scientists engaged in contemporary ethnographic research.
