Competing Power (eBook)
Landscapes Of Migration, Violence And The State
de Narmala Halstead
Sobre o livro
Drawing from ethnographic material based on long-term research, this volume considers competing forms of power at micro- and macro-levels in Guyana, where the local is marked by extensive migration, corruption, and differing levels of violence. It shows how the local is occupied and re-occupied by various powerful and powerless people and entities (big ones and small ones), and how it becomes the site of intense power negotiations in relation to external ideas of empowerment.
