About the Author

Arjun Appadurai is the Goddard Professor of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University and a senior fellow of the Institute of Public Knowledge. A Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, he is the author of editor of numerous books, including The Social Life of Things, Modernity at Large, Fear of Small Numbers, and The Future as a Cultural Fact.


In Banking on Words, Arjun Appadurai sets out his understanding of how anthropology can help analyze the ever-growing importance of the global financial market as an economic system and cultural field... it is a collection of theoretical elaborations that aim to give a genuinely anthropological interpretation of derivatives and the financial crisis that started in 2007... With this book, Appadurai confirms his status as one of the truly original thinkers of our time. His aim to bring the notion of spirit back to anthropological work on the financial markets is spot-on and truly needed.
--Stefan Leins "Anthropos "
