Abstract

How might we consider danger, risk and uncertainty from an anthropological perspective and as modes of inquiry? In the edited volume Modes of Uncertainty: Anthropological Cases, Limor Samimian-Darash and Paul Rabinow present a series of essays that set out the basis for an emerging anthropology of uncertainty. Although this book comes slim in hand, it offers in-depth cross-cultural explorations that will appeal to those interested in the changing nature of the field, writes Elena Burgos-Martínez.
