“There are few books in the field of Anthropology that tackle the issue of compliance as directly as this volume does … The editors have elicited a set of contributions that make significant and varied ethnographic contributions to fields, some of which have hitherto passed under the radar. The contributions are illuminating, topical and interesting.&rdqup; • Allen Abramson, University College London


Exploring compliance from an anthropological perspective, this book offers a varied and international selection of chapters covering taxation, corporate governance, medicine, development, carbon offsetting, irregular migration and the building trade. Compliance emerges as more than the opposite of resistance: instead, it appears as a valuable heuristic approach for understanding collective life, as a means by which actors strive to accommodate themselves to others. This perspective transcends conventional distinctions between power and resistance, and offers to open up new avenues of anthropological enquiry.

Will Rollason is a Senior Lecturer in Anthropology at Brunel University London. His research to date has focussed on Papua New Guinea and Rwanda.

Eric Hirsch is Professor of Anthropology at Brunel University London. He has a longstanding interest in the ethnography and history of Papua New Guinea.
