About the Author

Charlene Makley is Professor of Anthropology in the Anthropology Department, Reed College. She is author of The Violence of Liberation: Gender and Tibetan Buddhist Revival in Post-Mao China.


"This book foregrounds the worth of anthropological-qualitative research in studying development issues in China and elsewhere. Moreover, it promises a hope for anthropology with regards to its humanistic touch."

* The China Quarterly *

"Charlene Makley's The Battle for Fortune, the latest contribution to contemporary Tibetan studies, is a laudable accomplishment of her long years of ethnographic work with Tibetan communities in Qinghai Province... Overall, the book is a wellwritten dialogic ethnography-a solid addition to scholarship on the region as well as testament to consequences of modernization in a Tibetan region."

* American Anthropologist *
