GLOBAL FUTURES IN EAST ASIA: YOUTH, NATION, AND THE NEW ECONOMY IN UNCERTAIN TIMES by Ann Anagnost, Andrea Arai, and Hai Ren (eds.)
The East Asian economic miracle of the twentieth century is now a fond memory. What does it mean to be living in post-miracle times? For the youth of China, Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea, the opportunities and challenges of the neoliberal age, deeply shaped by global forces in labor markets, powerfully frame their life prospects in ways that are barely recognizable to their parents.
Global Futures in East Asia gathers together ethnographic explorations of what its contributors call projects of "life-making." Here we see youth striving to understand themselves, their place in society, and their career opportunities in the nation, region, and world. While some express optimism, it is clear that many others dread their prospects in the competitive global system in which the failure to thrive is isolating, humiliating, and possibly even fatal.
ROOTS OF THE STATE: NEIGHBORHOOD ORGANIZATION AND SOCIAL NETWORKS IN BEIJING AND TAIPEI by Benjamin L. Read
Most social science studies of local organizations tend to focus on "civil society" associations, voluntary groups independent from state control, whereas government-sponsored organizations tend to be theorized in totalitarian terms as "mass organizations" or manifestations of state corporatism. Roots of the State examines neighborhood-level structures in Beijing and Taipei that occupy a unique space that exists between these concepts.
Benjamin L. Read views the work of such organizations in East and Southeast Asia as a form of "administrative grassroots engagement." States sponsor networks of organizations at the most local of levels, and the networks facilitate governance and policing by building personal relationships with members of society. Leaders serve as the state's designated liaisons within the neighborhood and perform administrative duties covering a wide range of government

    THE VODOU PRIESTESS: MAMA LOLA I found Karen McCarthy Brown’s Mama Lola to be an innovative and intimate “ethnographic spiritual biography” exploring the lived realities, material and immaterial, of a Haitian Voudou priestess and her family in New York City from the late 1970’s through the 1980’s. (xiv) Brown’s approach is innovative because she treats her subjects’ as multi­vocal and fluid. Brown heeds her own advice and contrary to most ethnographic scholars before her, appropriately represents her own…

    The entire structure of Mama Day is fitting to the telling of multiple love stories entertwined. Like the most heartfelt episode of Seinfeld ever Gloria Naylor doesn’t tell a love story, but rather lays out in detail the events of everyday life for all of the central characters. In the process the love stories of the characters are all told at once. The most obvious example is the relationship between George and Cocoa (arguably the main love story). Through the book we see them meet, fall…
