Review

“This book is an excellent, multi-authored foray into the world ofrevolution that, in a groundbreaking fashion, reconceptualizes whatit means to be human in a context of rupture, transformation, andturmoil. It is a truly original (in all senses of the term) contributionto understanding the global and human condition of far-reachingpolitical, social, and cosmological change.—Bjørn Enge Bertelsen, author of Violent Becomings. StateFormation, Sociality, and Power in Mozambique --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

"With insightful references to cases around the world, Anthropologies of Revolution conceives revolutions as moments of cosmological transformation through which revolutionary subjects change their relations with themselves and with the worlds in which they live. The book advances a brilliant holistic theory that offers credibility and significance to the ways revolutions unfold in culturally specific practices without diminishing their political impact and universal aspirations."--Behrooz Ghamari-Tabrizi, author of Foucault in Iran: Islamic Revolution after the Enlightenment

"This fascinating volume opens up new horizons in the study of revolutionary practice. The authors make a signal contribution by decentering analysis of revolutions away from Europe, the source of definitions and trajectories long regarded as normative. The contributors subject normative understandings of revolution to critical ethnographic enquiry, and in the process create new conceptual spaces to consider important but neglected themes such as ritual, gender, cosmology, temporality, and personhood. It is difficult to imagine a more important or original work."--David Nugent, author of The Encrypted State: Delusion and Displacement in the Peruvian Andes

"This book is an excellent, multiauthored foray into the world of revolution that, in a groundbreaking fashion, reconceptualizes what it means to be human in a context of rupture, transformation, and turmoil. It is a truly original (in all senses of the term) contribution to understanding the global and human condition of far-reaching political, social, and cosmological change."--Bjørn Enge Bertelsen, author of Violent Becomings: State Formation, Sociality, and Power in Mozambique --This text refers to the paperback edition.
