Counterfeit Itineraries in the Global South

At the end of the 1970s, Chinese merchandise moved to Brazil via Paraguay, forming an on-the-margins-of-the-law tradechain involving the production, distribution, and consumption of cheap goods. Economic changes in the twenty-first century, including the enforcement of intellectual property rights and the growing importance of emerging economies, have had a dramatic effect on how this chain works, criminalizing and dismantling a trade system that had previously functioned in an organized form and stimulated the circulation of goods, money, and people at transnational levels.

“The book that the reader has in hand represents an accumulation of many years of research and reflection by Rosana Pinheiro-Machado. She followed the clues that the chain of goods provided, Rosana wrote a pioneering work in several levels. The first concerns the efforts to understand non-hegemonic global flows, whenever possible, through the ethnographic method. The second, due to the previous one, made Rosana Pinheiro-Machado the first Brazilian anthropologist, if not the first Brazilian social scientist, to do fieldwork in China”.
