The behaviour of politicians and public servants often strikes outside observers as erratic, inconsistent and sometimes foolish. One way of understanding their behaviour is political anthropology. This book focuses on the everyday life of ministers and senior public servants in different countries, describing their world through their eyes. It analyses how such practices are embedded in political and administrative traditions. It explores how their beliefs, practices and traditions create meaning in politics and public policy making. It provides unique data on the everyday life government elites and practical advice on how to conduct such fieldwork.

Review:

'This volume provides a distinctive and innovative insight into...important issues based on ethnographic approaches that political scientists typically eschew.  The scholarship is uniformly high, as would be expected from such a distinguished cohort of contributors.  I would have no hesitation in recommending this work to all scholars with an interest in the broad field.' - Michael Cole, University of Liverpool, Political Studies Review
