Gambling Debt

Iceland's Rise and Fall in the Global Economy

by E. Paul Durrenberger (Editor) and Gisli Palsson (Editor)
Gambling Debt is a game-changing contribution to the discussion of economic crises and neoliberal financial systems and strategies. Iceland?s 2008 financial collapse was the first case in a series of meltdowns, a warning of danger in the global order. This full-scale anthropology of financialization and the economic crisis broadly discusses this momentous bubble and burst, and places it in theoretical, anthropological, and global historical context through descriptions of the complex developments leading to it and the larger social and cultural implications and consequences.

Wyoming Revisited

Rephotographing the Scenes of Joseph E. Stimson

by Michael A. Amundson
In Wyoming Revisited, Michael A. Amundson uses the power of rephotography to show how landscapes across the state have endured over the last century. Three sets of photographs—the original black-and-white photographs taken by famed Wyoming photographer Joseph E. Stimson more than a century ago, repeat black-and-white images taken by Amundson in the 1980s, and a third view in color taken by the author in 2007-2008—are accompanied by captions explaining the history and importance of each site as well as information on the process of repeat photographic fieldwork.
