Herzfeld, Michael

2e hands

Artikelomschrijving

Herzfeld argues that modern bureaucratically regulated societies are no more rational or less symbolic than the societies traditionally studied by anthropologists. He suggests that we cannot understand national bureaucracies divorced from local-level ideas about chance, personal character, social relationships and responsibility. Herzfelds book is extremely ambitious and will be of interest to any anthropologist concerned with the study of bureaucracy, organizational and institutional control, symbols and their power, and social conflict...Thoughtful and challenging.--Helen B. Schwartzman, American Ethnologist
