Uses ethnographic tools to analyze political disorder and its representation at the end of the Cold War.

Book News
Shifting the focus of anthropology from discrete cultures to alternative and sub-versions of large-scale global orders, Borneman (anthropology, Cornell U.) employs new descriptive tools to analyze political disorder and its representation, issues that have become central with the end of the Cold War. He particularly investigates the dissolution of coherent identities and nations at a time when a group's legitimacy depends on its ability to approximate a nation state, taking the transformations in Germany as a case study. Most of the ten essays have been published previously. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
