              With a mix of ethnography and social theory, the contributors to Competing Responsibilities challenge contemporary understandings of responsibility in political, social, and ethical life by showing how neoliberalism's reification of the responsible subject masks the myriad forms ...of individual and collective responsibility that people engage with in their everyday lives.

              Radical changes in our understanding of health and healthcare are at the forefront of reshaping twenty-first-century personhood. In the last few years, there has been a great influx of public policy and biometric technologies targeted at engaging individuals in their own health, ...increasing personal responsibility, and encouraging people to self-manage their own care. One Blue Child examines the emergence of self-management as a global policy standard, focusing on how the neoliberal turn in healthcare is reshaping our relationships with ourselves and our bodies, with our families and our doctors, and with companies and the government. Comparing responses to childhood asthma in New Zealand and the Czech Republic, Susanna Trnka traces how ideas about self-management, as well as policies inculcating self-reliance and self-responsibility more broadly, are assumed, reshaped, and ignored altogether by medical professionals, asthma sufferers and parents, environmental activists, and policymakers. By studying nations that share a commitment to the ideals of neoliberalism but approach children's health according to very different cultural, political, and economic priorities, Trnka illuminates how responsibility is reformulated with sometimes surprising results. Ultimately she demonstrates both the benefits and limitations of self-management policies and the need to look at more comprehensive solutions to the asthma epidemic.

              This book engages anthropologically with humor as political expression. It reveals how humor is in many instances at the center of human efforts to cope with political struggle and a significant key to understanding power dynamics in socio-political life. The chapters examine hum...or and joking activities across a diverse range of geographic areas and cultural contexts. The contributors consider humor as it is constituted in political anxiety, aggression and power, and when it becomes a tool to resist, repair, reconcile or make a moral claim. Collectively they demonstrate that humor can provide a powerful critique, a non-violent form of political protest and the space for restoration of human dignity.
