E-Book review:

Review

"The book should be read by anyone interested in theories of ethnicity or identity. Enormously suggestive for Malagasy studies, the relevance of Astuti's arguments concerning kinship, descent, and death extend far beyond Madagascar" American Anthropologist

"The book provides an unusual combination of cool analysis with warm description." Michael Lambek, American Anthropologist

"This ethnography illuminates issues of identity which are otherwise lacking in the scholarly literature; the work, therefore, represents an important insight into the ways in which people perceive themselves. Organization is logical and discussion is thorough...Ease of reading and lucidity of discussion as well as the fascinating subject matter make this ethnography perfect for use in an undergraduate course." Religious Studies Review

Book Description

The Vezo are fishing people of western Madagascar. The identity of the Vezo is not fixed by descent; rather it is established by what they do. Ethnicity is usually thought to be a consequence of inborn qualities acquired by descent, and Dr Astuti explores the consequences of ascribing ethnic identity with reference to economic activity. Her argument in this innovative analysis of Vezo kinship is that the people distinguish two models of the person: one determined by the past, and the other defined contextually, in the present.
