9 AMIT, Vered, and Nigel RAPPORT RAPPORT, Nigel Trouble with Community : Anthropological Reflections on Movement, Identity and Collectivity. First Paperback Printing
Pluto Press, London / Sterling, VA, 2002, ISBN:0745317464 
AMIT, Vered, and Nigel RAPPORT. The Trouble with Community : Anthropological Reflections on Movement, Identity and Collectivity. London / Sterling, VA: Pluto Press, (2002). First Paperback Printing. Pp (6),1-185,(1). Index. 8vo, illustrated white card covers, lettered in black. "'Community' is one of social science's longest-standing concepts. The assumption, of much social science, has been that it is in communities -- and to communities -- that human individuals, as social and cultural beings, belong. Communities aresaid to embody that interactive environment from which individuals' identi ties and senses of self derive, and in which they continue to dwell. The trouble with 'community' is that this is not necessarily so; the personal social networks of individuals' actual experience crosscut collective categories, situations and institutions. Communities can prove unviable or imprisoning; the reality of community life and identity can often be very differentfrom the ideology and the ideal. In this provocative new book, anthropolog ists Vered Amit and Nigel Rapport draw on their various ethnographic experiences to reappraise the concept and the reality of 'community', in the light of globalization, religious fundamentalism, identity politics, and renascent localisms. How might anthropology better apprehend social identities which are intrinsically plural, transgressive and ironic? What has anthropology to say about the way in which civil society might hope to accommodate the on-going construction and the rightful expression of such migrant identities? Nigel Rapport and Vered Amit give their own answers to these questionsbefore entering into dialogue to assess each other's positions." (from the back cover). Contents : Prologue: The Book's Questions (by Nigel Rapport a nd Vered Amit). Pt. I. An Anthropology Without Community? (by Vered Amit): 1. Anthropology and Community: Some Opening Notes. 2.
