The Ankarana region of northern Madagascar has long been a draw for local people, foreign conservationists, ecotourists, and gemstone miners. Although some outsiders are inclined to see the sapphire and ecotourist industries as being at odds with one another, many Malagasy observers understand the connections between them, most obviously in how they both serve foreign demand for 'natural wonders' (whether sapphires or 'protected areas') that are of little use or interest to local people. Made in Madagascaris an innovative ethnography that explores these tensions and negotiations between the local Malagasy people and foreigners with sensitivity and a critical eye. Written in a warm and inviting tone, and engaging a host of contemporary challenges in a global world, the book also demonstrates the effects of anthropologists on the communities they research.
