"The analysis in The Battle for Fortune is fresh, original, and packed with insights. It is based on fieldwork in a region that is very difficult to work in, conducted during an extremely politically sensitive time. The Battle for Fortune also makes significant interventions into much broader sets of inquiries on development, capitalism, and anthropological inquiry writ large." -- Emily T. Yeh, Professor of Geography, University of Colorado at Boulder "The Battle for Fortune conveys a wealth of new insights about the deeply ambivalent, contradictory, and precarious experiences of Tibetan life in the contemporary PRC. Charlene Makley's rich ethnography and brilliant use of theory will change the way we think of Tibet in these tumultuous early decades of the twenty-first century." -- Ralph Litzinger, Associate Professor of Cultural Anthropology, Duke University "Suturing rich ethnographic narrative with deft theoretical analysis, Charlene Makley's latest work is a timely excavation of neoliberal development practices. Rigorous and legible, this book is an urgent read, not only for students of Tibet and linguistic anthropology, but for anyone keen to deepen their engagement with pressing contemporary quandaries of globalization." -- Sam Smith, Freelance Editor, Brooklyn, NY
