A century ago Florian Znaniecki wrote the two-volume classic, The Polish Peasant with W.I. Thomas – a global ethnography that followed Polish immigrants to Chicago. Seen as foundational to the Chicago School of sociology, it was followed by successive generations of local studies – a dramatic narrowing of scope and scale. A century ago, another Pole, Bronisław Malinowski, was pioneering the anthropology of isolated communities but his successors advanced from the local to the global, yet often renouncing the virtues of its defining trait - deep ethnography. Having passed each other in the night, moving in opposite directions, it is high time for sociology and anthropology to be reconnected and recombined. This is the endeavor I will attempt through the exploration of 50 years of ethnography of the Zambian copper industry, taking us historically from British colonialism to Chinese expansionism.
