The latest title in the Research in Economic Anthropology series offers anthropological perspectives on health, money, commerce, and wealth from research sites in Asia, Africa, North and South America. Published in May of 2024, Volume 43: Health, Money, Commerce, and Wealth is dedicated to the memory of Carolyn Lesorogol (1965-2023), who was a member of REA’s Editorial Advisory Board, and who also helped establish a relationship between REA and the SEA when she was president of the latter.

About Research in Economic Anthropology

Research in Economic Anthropology (REA) is the longest-running book series exclusively dedicated to economic anthropology. Since its founding, the series has enjoyed a high reputation as a promoter of “the comparative study – though time and space – of economic systems in their broader sociocultural context” (Dannhaeuser and Werner 2002).

As an anthropological series, REA is especially concerned with empirical ethnographic research. Theoretically-oriented essays and reviews are also accepted for consideration, as are submissions by non-anthropologists. Today, with its considerable momentum, REA continues to promote economic anthropology and improve our understanding of human economic behavior. All papers in REA are subject to double-blind peer review.
