Overview
Scholars of post-socialist politics and society have often used 'favour' as a by-word for corruption and clientelism. Drawing on ethnographic material from across the Eurasian landmass, the contributors to this volume treat favours, and the doing of favours, as a distinct mode of acting, rather than as a form of 'masked' economic exchange or simply an expression of goodwill. Casting their comparative net from Central, Eastern, and South Eastern Europe; to the former Soviet Union, Mongolia, and post-Maoist China, they show how gratuitous behaviour shapes a plethora of different actions, practices, and judgements across religious life, imaginative practices, and local moral economies.
