   Abstract = {© Erik Harms, Shafqat Hussain, Sasha Newell, Charles Piot,
             Louisa Schein, Sara Shneiderman, Terence S. Turner, and Juan
             Zhang. Eight anthropologists working in various parts of
             Asia, Africa, and Latin America reflect on an essay by Edwin
             Ardener on the concept of remote areas recently reprinted in
             Hau (Volume 2, Issue 1). These reflections all show that the
             idea of the remote can be detached from its geographical
             moorings and understood not simply as a spatial concept but
             as a relativistic social construct. Considered in
             conjunction with the notion of edginess, they understand
             remoteness not so much as a place, but as a way of being. By
             purposefully comparing work in cities and in places more
             commonly described as remote, they show that the remote may
             be present in any site of anthropological
             inquiry.},

             I<jats:sc>ssue</jats:sc> is the condensation of an
             author-meets-critics double panel organized for the African
             Studies Association meeting in Washington, D.C., in November
             2005, on Jane Guyer's challenging book <jats:italic>Marginal
             Gains—Monetary Transactions in Atlantic
             Africa</jats:italic>. The book was published in the first
             half of 2004, and when the three of us met in the fall of
             that year, we all felt it was a text that lent itself
             especially well to such a session. One of the elements that
             makes the book so compelling is Guyer's particular style of
             theorizing: Starting from a painstaking effort to discover
             regular patterns in empirical data, she moves to the
             positing and testing of theoretical notions—but in a way
             that does not strive to produce closure or systematicity. On
             the contrary, the book can sometimes be confusing because it
             leaves so much open. But precisely because Guyer continues
             to create new openings, it is an inspiring piece of work,
             constantly offering novel starting points for further
             research and reflection.</jats:p>},
