Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The articles in this influential journal placed it in the thick of a turbulent period for anthropology. Reacting to current research interests and launching what were often heated debates, it set the agenda for disciplinary change and new research.

Once described the American Anthropological Association as creating 'a strong voice for anthropology in the public arena', the Founder Editor, Jonathan Benthall, introduces here a personal selection of articles and letters with his own candid retrospect, arguing that the discipline's greatest strength and potential lies in testing and refining the ideas of other disciplines.

Synopsis:

This work covers: feminine power; fieldwork as intervention; anthropology and the mass media; and war and civil strife. It also includes a mid-1970s exchange between young fieldworker Glynn Floor and development expert A.J. Robertson, published just before Glynn was murdered by Ethiopian soldiers.

Synopsis:

The journal "Anthropology Today" has been and remains extremely influential in anthropological studies. Its articles have not just reacted to current research interests but also launched (often heated) debates while setting the agenda for disciplinary change and new research. Once described by the American Anthropological Association as creating "a strong voice for anthropology in the public arena," the Founder and Editor, Jonathan Benthall, introduces a personal selection of articles and letters with his own candid retrospect, arguing that the discipline's greatest strength and potential lies in testing and refining the ideas of other disciplines. The editorial policy of encouraging sharp, concise writing will make this collection and its vast array of articles essential for teachers and students yet palatable for all those with an interest in anthropology.
