About the Author

Alex Golub is Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Hawai`i at Manoa. He is a cofounder of the anthropology blog savageminds.org.


"Leviathans at the Gold Mine is an important contribution to our knowledge of the Porgera mine and mining in Papua New Guinea more generally. Alex Golub offers a subtle, original reading of mine-landowner relations, as well as new information about the microprocesses associated with Porgera mining, such as how landownership is determined and how royalty checks are distributed. Those insights will be welcomed by scholars interested in local-global articulations and the politics and misunderstandings associated with them." - Aletta Biersack, coeditor of Reimagining Political Ecology "Offers an ethnographic perspective on the relationship between the Ipili people and the international gold-mine operation on their land" - Chronicle of Higher Education
