Anthropologists Inside Organisations: South Asian Case Studies responds to a shift in anthropology over the past decade towards working with and studying organisations. This book brings together seven fresh case studies on how anthropologists have negotiated the issues related to interacting with organisations. While providing examples of how research has been conducted inside and with organisations, the collection also offers analyses of the methodological issues that researchers face.
All the case studies in this volume are based on South Asia or South Asians. With an emphasis on methodology, these will prove to be a significant source of information for students, researchers and academics working in the areas of development studies, socio-cultural anthropology, public health, education, sociology, political science and social work.
