Those five are the duties of universal obligation. Knowledge, magnanimity, and energy, these three, are the virtues universally binding. And the means by which they carry the duties into practice is singleness.

New York City and Sudan. Shifting her focus to working-class families in New York City, Cindi Katz exposes connections with the Sudanese in the effects of a capitalist environment on children.
Growing Up Global is a valuable new addition to the growing list of critical ethnographies of globalization. New York City and a village in northern Sudan. It follows a small number of children intermittently from ten years of age to early adulthood, concentrating particularly on their work and play, which together trained the children for an agrarian life centered around the family, a life that was quickly becoming obsolete.
Shifting her focus to largely working-class families in New York City in the s and s, Katz is able to expose unsuspected connections with the Sudanese experience in the effects on children of a constantly changing, capitalist environment—the decline of manufacturing jobs and the increase in knowledge-based jobs—in which young people with few skills and stunted educations face bleak employment prospects.
Myths and Meanings of Urban Life on the Zambian Copperbelt This is a book that I highly recommend; it brings to us an issue, a place, and a people that rarely make it into our political imaginations.
This book and the critical geography it represents are a remarkable effort to bridge two seemingly different worlds in both time and space.
This book is likely to be viewed as a landmark text within a host of areas of research interest. I anticipate that Growing up Global will prove to be a significant resource for academics and students at a variety of undergraduate and graduate levels — Environment and Planning A Brilliant and intimate.
The book is an eloquent rendition of the expansive spatial abstractions and mimetic revolutionary re-imagination it proposes.
Katz beautifully exercises the craft of the ethnographer. This text provides a substantial and worthwhile analysis of the workings of globalization and its local impacts.
Everyone should read this. The work is anchored in political economy but draws on an impressive breadth of scholarship from many disciplines including anthropology, sociology, psychology, and geography. This book represents a tremendous achievement and contribution—a model for future research.
This book is peppered with casual but deeply insightful asides.
This is an inspiring book in which the author combines the craft of the ethnographer with incisive theoretical analysis, infused throughout with affectionate warmth for her research participants and collaborators.Student Reaction Papers.
