By the highest standards, Assault on Paradise ranks among the best and most complete modern ethnographic accounts ever written. In a rich narrative style, it chronicles the rapid social and economic change in Arembepe, a once-isolated coastal fishing village in Brazil where the author first conducted anthropological fieldwork more than fifty years ago. With emphasis on the impact of globalization, technology, and mass media, the current edition extends stories of people and events as well as internal and external changes. Readers quickly feel a part of the evolving community of Arembepe and the author’s close friends and informants. As one reviewer put it, “The people and personalities come through in a very human and often amusing way. This isn’t ethnography with the people taken out.” The well-structured, jargon-free coverage makes it ideal for use in introductory anthropology courses.

Each year, more and more Americans travel out of the country seeking low cost medical treatments abroad, including fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilization (IVF). As the lower middle classes of the United States have been priced out of an expensive privatized "baby business," the Czech Republic has emerged as a central hub of fertility tourism, offering a plentitude of blonde-haired, blue-eyed egg donors at a fraction of the price. Fertility Holidays presents a critical analysis of white, working class North Americans' motivations and experiences when traveling to Central Europe for donor egg IVF. Within this diaspora, patients become consumers, urged on by the representation of a white Europe and an empathetic health care system, which seems nonexistent at home. As the volume traces these American fertility journeys halfway around the world, it uncovers layers of contradiction embedded in global reproductive medicine. Speier reveals the extent to which reproductive travel heightens the hope ingrained in reproductive technologies, especially when the procedures are framed as "holidays." The pitch of combining a vacation with their treatment promises couples a stress-free IVF cyc≤ yet, in truth, they may become tangled in fraught situations as they endure an emotionally wrought cycle of IVF in a strange place. Offering an intimate, first-hand account of North Americans' journeys to the Czech Republic for IVF, Fertility Holidays exposes reproductive travel as a form of consumption which is motivated by complex layers of desire for white babies, a European vacation, better health care, and technological success.

In seinem neuen großen Essay über die Natur des Menschen betreibt Peter Sloterdijk Märchen-Kritik: Als Kritik des Märchens von der Rückkehr der Religion könnte man seine Thesen verstehen. Doch nicht die Religion kehrt zurück. Es verschafft sich vielmehr etwas ganz Fundamentales in der Gegenwart Raum: Der Mensch als Übender, als sich durch Übungen selbst erzeugendes Wesen. Rainer Maria Rilke hat den Antrieb zu solchen Exerzitien zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts in die Form gefaßt: »Du mußt dein Leben ändern.« In seinem Plädoyer für die Ausweitung der Übungszone des einzelnen wie der Gesellschaft entwirft Peter Sloterdijk eine grundlegende und grundlegend neue Anthropologie. Den Kern seiner Wissenschaft vom Menschen bildet die Einsicht von der Selbstbildung alles Humanen. Seine Aktivitäten wirken unablässig auf ihn zurück: die Arbeit auf den Arbeiter, die Kommunikation auf den Kommunizierenden, die Gefühle auf den Fühlenden ... Es sind die ausdrücklich übenden Menschen, die diese Existenzweise am deutlichsten verkörpern: Bauern, Arbeiter, Krieger, Schreiber, Yogi, Rhetoren, Instrumentalvirtuosen oder Models. Ihre Trainingspläne und Höchstleistungen versammelt dieses Buch zu einer vergnüglich-instruktiven Lektüre von den Übungen, die erforderlich sind, ein Mensch zu sein.
