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

"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

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.
