Global Governmentality: The Case of Transnational Adoption

This is a study of the meanings and possibilities for justice in the contemporary world. Anthropologists examine the ambiguities of justice in Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. In her chapter "Global Governmentality: the case of transnational adoption", Signe Howell examines some implications of international adoption legislation.
