The authors of this volume push ethnographic inquiry beyond the anthropocentric documentation of human work on nature in order to develop a language for thinking about how all labor is a collective ecological act.
Ultimately the book aims to expand the parameters of what has typically been a US-centric discussion of faith-based interventions as it explores the concepts of faith, charity, security, and governance within a global perspective.

This anthropological study of grassroots community leaders in Porto Alegre, Brazil’s leftist hotspot, focuses on gender, politics, and regionalism during the early 2000s, when the Workers’ Party (Partido dos Trabalhadores) was in power.
Arguing that geospatial analysis holds great promise for much anthropological inquiry, the contributors have designed this volume to show how the powerful tools of GIScience can be used to benefit a variety of research programs.
