If you are interested in digital anthropology, you may also be interested in my short book review of Daniel Miller and Heather Horst’s book Digital Anthropology. The review can be found here. I think the book will be useful for students, but I didn’t feel it pushed the field forward at all. Nor do I feel it met its goal of founding an entire new sub discipline of anthropology. But how often do books achieve goals like that? Overall its very useful for people trying to learn more about this area, I think.
