Sociocultural Anthropology, Archaeology, Linguistics, and Physical Anthropology. Urban Anthropology, a subset of Anthropology, is a relatively new and developing field. Ulf Hannerz quotes a 1960s remark that anthropologists were "a notoriously agoraphobic lot, anti-urban by definition". As research increased in these areas during the twentieth century, however, more anthropologists focused their scope of research. High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Smaller, more specific subject areas arose that did not fit into the traditional main fields, and were therefore defined as individual subfields. A relatively new subfield that emerged in the 1960s and 70s, urban anthropology is often concerned with issues of urbanization, poverty, and neoliberalism. Traditional anthropology was divided into four main fields: Various social processes in the Western World as well as in the "Third World" (the latter being the habitual focus of attention of anthropologists) brought the attention of "specialists in ' other cultures' " closer to their homes.

|Family Background and Life Chances in Urban China. 1950-1996 Книга по Требованию |
First, it argues that China' s socialist revolution was a manifestation of elite competition. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members who joined the revolution before 1949 were from relatively well-off families. After the dust of the socialist revolution subsided, China embarked on a journey whereby supporters of the CCP were rewarded and dissenters punished in the name of social equality. Second, the book traces the life chances of individuals from various families (new elite families, party member families, old elite families, and humble families). Using rigorous statistical analysis, the author claims that social equality was elusive despite the tremendous effort of state intervention by the CCP. With elite families competing to get ahead, humble families were robbed of the promised equality of a socialist state. This book presents empirical evidence from a nationally representative dataset from urban China and demonstrates the impact of family background on the attainment of education, communist party membership and occupation. The book makes two main arguments.
|"Diverse Informalities" Spatial Transformations in Nairobi. A study of Nairobi's urban process Книга по Требованию Tom J.C.A. |
From its establishment, Nairobi' s urbanisation has always been characterised by dualism; formal and informal. I argue that informal urbanisation is defined by spatial strategies rather than legal/economic distinctions. The book examines the dynamics of the urbanisation process through case studies, in the four categories of informalities; survival, primary, intermediate and affluent. Diverse Informalities have shown that the informal phenomenon is not entirely negative, as it provides some form of urban livelihood for the poor. This book will be a resource to; Academics in urbanism, Architects and Planners. It will also be useful to urban managers/administrators, policy makers and development agencies among others. The phenomenon of Informal Urbanisation has become the single most pervasive element of city making in developing countries. The city of Nairobi presents such an urban paradigm. This book raises questions about the role of informality on the urban process of the city of Nairobi. It has however been shown that this urban process is heterogeneous and not homogeneous as propagated by many scholars/researchers.
