Críticas: In this brilliant account of cell phone use among low-income people in Jamaica, anthropologists Horst and Miller demonstrate the critically important contributions that anthropology can make the communication studies...indispensable reading for the anthropology of communication and the anthropology of policy. A. Arno, Choice What kind of an object does the cell phone become in the hands of low income Jamaicans? In this insightful study, Horst and Miller explore what it means when the phone's leading attribute is less its mobility, or the mobility that it enables, than the possibility of intensifying connections already in play. Conjoining close place-based ethnography with broad historical, political and economic contextualizations, this book further challenges simple stories of a technology's 'global impacts.' Lucy Suchman, Lancaster University An ethnographic exploration of the significance of the cell phone for developing countries, which advances an anthropology of communication in new and fascinating directions. Sonia Livingstone, London School of Economics Horst and Miller give a dazzling display of new and innovative methods, combined with sophisticated use of anthropological theory. The writing is engaging and the descriptions of people and places are vivid, making this a wonderful resource for teaching. It will have a broad appeal in many disciplines, and any reader interested in new technologies will find surprises here. Richard Wilk, Indiana University A landmark in mobile phone studies that will appeal to a wide audience and that is likely to frame debates in this field for some time to come. Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute
