Afghan Traders Across Modern Frontiers
The introduction introduces the aims and scope of the book and its over-arching arguments. It situates the book’s ethnographic material on Afghan traders in relationship to scholarly work on Afghanistan and Central Asia, trade and traders, globalisation, markets and the economy, as well as anthropological work on Islam, ethics and morality, and neoliberalism. The introduction critically analyses discourses concerning the development of the so-called new Silk Route. It also introduces the multi-sited fieldwork methods upon which the ethnographic material presented in the book are based, and describes the locations in which this fieldwork was conducted.
