Research in Economic Anthropology (REA) is the longest-running book series exclusively dedicated to economic anthropology, and enjoys a high reputation as a promoter of “the comparative study – though time and space – of economic systems in their broader sociocultural context”, as editors Dannhaeuser and Werner described their aim in the introduction to Volume 21 (2002, p. 1). As an anthropological series, REA is especially concerned with empirical ethnographic research, but more theory-oriented essays and reviews are also accepted for consideration, as are submissions by non-anthropologists. Most volumes are the result of open-theme calls for papers, but some volumes center on certain themes. For example, Volume 26 was concerned with the economics of health and well-being. REA has long been closely associated with the Society for Economic Anthropology (SEA), and many well-known economic anthropologists and members of SEA have contributed works for the series. Today, with its considerable momentum, REA continues to promote economic anthropology and improve our understanding of human economic behavior.
