Inequality is currently gaining considerable attention in academic, policy, and media circles.
From Thomas Piketty to Robert Putnam, there is no shortage of economic, sociological, or political analyses.
But what does anthropology, with its focus on the qualitative character of relationships between people, have to offer?
Drawing on current scholarship and illustrative ethnographic case studies, McGill argues that anthropology is particularly well suited to interrogating global inequality, not just within nations, but across nations as well.
Brief, accessibly written, and peppered with vivid ethnographic examples that bring contemporary research to life, Global Inequality is an introduction to the topic from a unique and important perspective.
