The Anthropology Book Forum invites scholars to critically review and discuss recently published books or other scholarly contributions of relevance to the anthropological community, broadly conceived. We ask that reviews and other articles focus on contributions that have published or created in the past three years, but cases can be made for revisiting older works.
Written manuscripts should be between within the word limit set out in our Focus and Scope section, 1.5-spaced and in a 12-point font, preferably Times New Roman or equivalent, including quotations and excerpts, notes, references, tables, and figure captions. Position the notes at the end and the list of works cited after the notes. In addition, authors are asked to include a short bio at the end of their review.
ABF follows the Chicago Manual of Style (16th ed., University of Chicago Press, 2010) for most matters of style, including hyphenation, capitalization, punctuation, abbreviations, and grammar, and follows Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary (11th edition, 2003) for spelling.
Please include: the author(s) name and short biography; book citation (see below); five keywords; any notes, references, and figure captions. All pages of the manuscript should be numbered consecutively on the right-hand bottom side. Please do not use inserted page breaks.
For reviews and review articles, book titles should be listed at the top of the page as such:
DEBORAH REED-DANAHAY, 2020, Bourdieu and Social Space: Mobilities, Trajectories, Emplacements, New York: Berghahn Books, 170 pp., ISBN 978-1-78920-353-0
