Money: Ethnographic Encounters

Money: Ethnographic Encounters - Allison Truitt, Stefan Senders I would say 4.5 stars; I didn't LOVE it but it was quite good.

This is a collection of essays that are personal narratives of anthropologists, dealing with money in their fieldwork. It's not that they were studying money, but rather an examination of what money was able to do for them, or how it got them into trouble, while they were doing their research in other countries. I found the last essay to be particularly good.
