News stories provide an essential confirmation of our ideas about who we are, what we have to fear, and what to do about it: a marketplace of ideas, shopped by rational citizen decision makers but also a shared resource for grounding our contested narratives of identity in objective reality. News as a fundamental social process comes into being not when an event takes place or when a report of the event is created but when that report becomes news to someone. As it moves off the page into the community, news discovers - through its interpretations - its reality in the lives of the consumers. This book explores the path of news as it moves through the tangled labyrinth of social identities and asserted interests that lie beyond the page or screen. The language and communication-oriented study of news promises a salient area of investigation, pointing the way to an expansion, if not a redefinition of basic anthropological ideas and practices of ethnography, participant observation, and “the field” in the future of anthropological research.

In two volumes, the SAGE Handbook of Social Anthropology provides the definitive overview of contemporary research in the discipline. It explains the what, where, and how of current and anticipated work in Social Anthropology. With 80 authors, contributing more than 60 chapters, this is the most comprehensive and up-to-date statement of research in Social Anthropology available and the essential point of departure for future projects. The Handbook is divided into four sections: -Part I: Interfaces examines Social Anthropology's disciplinary connections, from Art and Literature to Politics and Economics, from Linguistics to Biomedicine, from History to Media Studies. -Part II: Places examines place, region, culture, and history, from regional, area studies to a globalized world -Part III: Methods examines issues of method; from archives to war zones, from development projects to art objects, and from ethics to comparison -Part IV: Futures anticipates anthropologies to come: in the Brain Sciences; in post-Development; in the Body and Health; and in new Technologies and Materialities Edited by the leading figures in social anthropology, the Handbook includes a substantive introduction by Richard Fardon, a think piece by Jean and John Comaroff, and a concluding last word on futures by Marilyn Strathern. The authors - each at the leading edge of the discipline - contribute in-depth chapters on both the foundational ideas and the latest research. Comprehensive and detailed, this magisterial Handbook overviews the last 25 years of the social anthropological imagination. It will speak to scholars in Social Anthropology and its many related disciplines.

Internet activism is playing a crucial role in the democratic reform happening across many parts of Southeast Asia. Focusing on Subang Jaya, a suburb of Kuala Lumpur, this study offers an in-depth examination of the workings of the Internet at the local level. In fact, Subang Jaya is regarded as Malaysia's electronic governance laboratory. The author explores its field of residential affairs, a digitally mediated social field in which residents, civil servants, politicians, online journalists and other social agents struggle over how the locality is to be governed at the dawn of the 'Information Era'. Drawing on the field theories of both Pierre Bourdieu and the Manchester School of political anthropology, this study challenges the unquestioned predominance of 'network' and 'community' as the two key sociation concepts in contemporary Internet studies. The analysis extends field theory in four new directions, namely the complex articulations between personal networking and social fields, the uneven diffusion and circulation of new field technologies and contents, intra- and inter-field political crises, and the emergence of new forms of residential sociality.

Fernsehnachrichten bilden die Wirklichkeit nicht einfach unverandert ab, sondern sie deuten die Ereignisse in ihren Beitragen: Bestimmte Aspekte eines Themas werden in den Vordergrund geruckt, andere vernachlassigt, bestimmte Akteure werden ausgewahlt, die zeitliche Reihenfolge der Geschehnisse wird nach bestimmten Mustern umgestellt etc. Damit rucken Nachrichtenbeitrage in die Nahe von fiktionalen Erzahlungen und man kann sie deshalb mit den Mitteln der Erzahltechnik untersuchen. In diesem Buch werden Beitrage aus unterschiedlichen Schweizer Fernsehnachrichtensendungen von 1957 bis 1999 zum Thema Schweizer Auslanderpolitik einer linguistischen Narrationsanalyse unterzogen. Die Ergebnisse dieser Analyse zeigen detailliert, wie in den Tagesschau-Beitragen Bedeutung und somit Wirklichkeit konstruiert wird und wie sich diese Muster im Laufe der Zeit andern. Gerade der Wandel dieser Muster verweist darauf, dass die Tagesschau wie jede Nachrichtensendung eben nicht -objektiv berichtet-, sondern uber die Muster der Beitrage die Ereignisse deutet. Dabei ist sie immer auch gepragt vom jeweiligen gesellschaftlichen Diskurs und beeinflusst diesen gleichzeitig zu einem gewissen Grade. Die dem Buch beigelegte DVD enthalt alle detailliert analysierten Beitrage der Tagesschau und anderer Sendungen aus den Jahren 1957 bis 1999."
