The emerging complex dynamics that connect global and local processes have intensified the world has become, in many ways, a single place. Any history of applied anthropology is inextricably linked to the history of the discipline as a whole, even in countries where relations between applied/practicing and academic anthropologists have been contentious. Since the early 1990′s, the pace of globalization, with its new forms of linkages and communication, has been rapidly re–shaping the discipline of anthropology here in the US as well as abroad. This volume presents original information that allows a systematic comparison and contrast of applied/practicing anthropology from a global perspective. Contributors from ten nations (Canada, China, Ecuador, Egypt, Great Britain, India, Israel, Portugal, and Russia and the United States) discuss their perspectives as practitioners and applied anthropologists. They describe the state of applied/practicing anthropology in their countries, providing data for an analysis of the changing nature of anthropology on a worldwide scale. The authors also represent diverse national perspectives about the goals, roles, and statuses of anthropology in global change processes. The discussion presented in this Volume 25 of the NAPA Bulletin series has important implications for the future of global applied/practice and presents challenges to the organization and uses of the products of anthropological inquiry.
