As issues and circumstances investigated by anthropologists are becoming ever more diverse, the need to address social affiliation in contemporary situations of mobility, urbanity, transnational connections, individuation, media, and capital flows, has never been greater. Thinking Through Sociality combines a review of classical theories with recent theoretical innovations across a wide range of issues, locales, situations and domains. In this book, an international group of contributors train attention on the concepts of disjuncture, field, social space, sociability, organizations and network, mid-range concepts that are "good to think with." Neither too narrowly defined nor too sweeping, these concepts can be used to think through a myriad of ethnographic situations.

"[The volume] advances conceptual tools for contemporary anthropology and in provides a valuable source of overviews of the examined concepts, stimulating reading on how to think the configuration of social life." * Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute

"I don't know of a book that explores [sociality] so centrally and effectively... Each chapter and concept has multiple applications across a range of research and conceptualization... Overall, I enjoyed reading this unpacking of sociality through different lenses very much, and I am sure others will too." * Caroline Knowles, Goldsmiths, University of London
