Disasters, Culture, Politics: Chinese-Bulgarian Anthropological Contribution to the Study of Critical Situations
The articles in the volume contribute to a relatively new domain of scholarly research - ecological anthropology, focusing especially on contemporary crises and disasters from different backgrounds: natural, social, technological, etc. The authors investigate a variety of disasters' situations in two contemporary societies of the developing world - China in Southeast Asia, and Bulgaria in the Southeast European Balkans. The articles investigate the interrelationships between cultural, demographic, political, economic, and environmental domains related to the disasters. The volume applies a broad ethnological approach to the field of disasters' study, which interprets them comparatively, contextually, and in cross-cultural perspective. It is conceived as a first volume of a series of investigation papers by a joint research team on this topic.
