Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This collection of essays is not for the timid or the traditionalist. It presupposes considerable knowledge of philosophy and history as well as anthropology, but for those with the background (or the persistent lay reader), it offers thoughtful and critical responses to important questions, among them, how ethnography is done, how it is represented through writing, and what effect literary criticism has had on the critical self-awareness of ethnographers. Fabian (cultural anthropology, Univ. of Amsterdam), whose fieldwork includes extensive experience in the Congo, also writes of anthropology's historical links with colonialism, which provided privileged access to the peoples anthropologists studied. He reminds us that "anthropology emerged, less as a science of human nature than as the study of the damage done by one part of mankind to another (and thereby to all of humanity)." Highly recommended for libraries with graduate programs in anthropology. Faye Powell, Portland State Univ. Lib., OR

Review

"[Anthropology with an Attitude] offers thoughtful and critical responses to important questions. . . . Highly recommended for libraries with graduate programs in anthropology."—Library Journal


"Neither positivist nor postmodernist, Johannes Fabian is an "anthropologist with an attitude" compounded, we might say, of dialectics, decency, and a trenchant sense of the absurd."—American Anthropologist
