The book features an insightful and artfully argued attack on ideologies that control scholars, going back to the 19th century. Point well made but limited in scope. The critique of the Context Group, however, is notably lacking in credibility. It's a hard sell that working through cross-cultural models, as the Context Group systematically has over its many years, contributes to Anglo-American hegemony. Do models proposed by established anthropologists really reflect Said's "Orientalism" phenomenon? If ever there was a group of diligent scholars promoting fair assessment, it's this group with its many efforts to penetrate false contemporary assumptions to establish meanings in the context of the authors. Honest assessment requires re-thinking in this study that otherwise is a clarion call to examine socio-cultural agendas.
