Note

This essay deals with the ebb and flow of interest in the broker in anthropology since the 1950s. It attempts to situate this interest in relation to the changing world that anthropology has been concerned with, and in the context of shifting theoretical perspectives within the discipline. Beginning with the era of decolonialization and the rise of the new nation-states, it tracks the position of the broker in relation to trends within political and economic anthropology, before pointing towards current concerns in anthropology.
