Introduction : Olympic time and dilemmas of development in China's Tibet -- The dangers of the gift master -- The mountain deity and the state : voice, deity mediumship and land expropriation in Jima village -- Othering spaces, cementing treasure : concrete, money, and the politics of value in Kharnak village school -- The melodious sound of the right-turning conch : historiography and Buddhist counter-development in Langmo village -- Spectacular compassion : "natural" disasters, national mourning, and the unquiet dead -- Epilogue : the kindly solemn face of the female Buddha.

Based on long-term fieldwork in a rural Tibetan region in China's northwest (2002-13), 'The Battle for Fortune' is an ethnography of state-local relations among Tibetans marginalized underChina's Great Develop the West campaign and during the 2008 military crackdown on Tibetan unrest. The study brings anthropological approaches to states and development into dialogue with recent interdisciplinary debates about the very nature of human subjectivity and relations with nonhuman others (including deities).
