Editorial Reviews

Review

"If there is one book that redefines anthropology for the twenty-first century, this is it. It is a ground-breaking study that takes us to the ethical heart of the social sciences. This is an essential book for our times." - Carolyn Nordstrom, University of 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"

From the Inside Flap

"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

This is a good material for anyone like to enter the study of anthropology. Controversies could be a bit out of my expectation to this book, however, I also could not stop myself finishing this book as soon as possible.

Format: Paperback
Pathetic on the face of it, but does go a long way towards demonstrating why modern anthropology, populated with its peculiar little careerists, is completely bereft of scientific relevance anymore.
