Syrian Episodes:
Sons, Fathers, and an Anthropologist in Aleppo
John Borneman

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"John Borneman's Syrian Episodes is an exquisite and compulsively readable account of a picaresque sojourn in Aleppo, Syria. The book raises the nervous matter of experience in anthropology, troubles the bad faith of much ethnographic intention, and develops an approach that refuses to patronize. This is one of the more exciting--and ethically and intellectually demanding--works of anthropology that I have read in years, and also among the most beautiful. There is no other book like it."--Lawrence Cohen, University of California, Berkeley
