Abstract

[Extract] The essays in this forum collection are concerned primarily with the application of expert knowledge in fields where there is the expectation of considerable cultural, social and political consequence for human populations, as a result of state, corporate, or non-governmental organizational action. The essays here are, with a couple of exceptions, written by anthropologists whose knowledge- insofar as it may be distinct from others in the social sciences- is based conventionally in a methodology of long-term fieldwork of a small-scale, face-to-face kind, and founded in theoretical orientations which are sensitive to cultural and social difference.
