Abstract

In Anthropologists in the Stock Exchange: A Financial History of Victorian Science, Marc Flandreau traces the interwoven development of anthropology, global finance and scientific study, placing all three at the heart of late-nineteenth-century British imperialism. While taking issue with elements of Flandreau’s style and disinclination to link his findings with other scholarly work in the field, the book offers thought-provoking reflections on the epistemic ties between colonialism and the stock market that should inspire further research, writes Ed Jones.
