Abstract

"Resonance: Beyond the Words." Unni Wikan. University of Chicago Press. February 2013. --- Resonance gathers together forty years of anthropological study by a researcher and writer with one of the broadest fieldwork résumés in anthropology: Unni Wikan. In its twelve essays, this book covers encounters with transvestites in Oman, childbirth in Bhutan, poverty in Cairo, and ‘honour’ killings in Scandinavia. Whether an anthropologist, a student of immigration law, or a policy maker, Wikan’s essays will provide readers with a striking yet compassionate framework for understanding how people across time and place deal with global contemporary concerns, writes Jia Hui Lee.
