Summary: "Ethnographies of Waiting explores the social phenomenon of waiting and its centrality in human society. Using waiting as a central analytical category, the book investigates how waiting is negotiated in myriad ways. Examining the politics and poetics of waiting, it offers fresh perspectives on waiting as the uncertain interplay between doubting and hoping, and asks 'When is time worth the wait?' Waiting thus conceived is intrinsic to the ethnographic method at the heart of the anthropological enterprise. Features eight detailed ethnographies from Japan, Georgia, England, Ghana, Norway, Russia and the United States, a Foreword by Craig Jeffrey, and an afterword by Ghassan Hage" -- Provided by publisher.
