Beschreibung

"If there is one book that redefines anthropology for the 21st century, this is it. It is a ground-breaking study that takes us to the ethical heart of the social sciences. Using the "Yanomami controversy as a lens for examining anthropology itself, Borofsky asks anthropologists -- from introductory students to advanced scholars -- how we should craft the values that define our work and ourselves. This is an essential book for our times."--Carolyn Nordstrom, University Notre Dame"What better way to learn anthropology than through one of its great controversies? Written in a lucid and concise manner, "Yanomami is really two books in one: First, it is a riveting, issues-oriented text that is ideal for sparking interest and provoking discussion among introductory students; second it is an invaluable analysis of critical disciplinary questions that every anthropologist and anthropologist-in-the-making need ponder."--Alex Hinton, Rutgers University
