As a sophisticated attempt to move beyond post-colonial frameworks of analysis that no longer quite capture the peculiarities of the present moment, it deserves to be taken seriously. This well-written book contains good illustrations that help readers contextualize the stories. Jean Comaroff, University of Chicago.
