Publisher Comments:

provides a most-needed analysis of the benefits and limitations of the new cultural anthropology. Bolles American Ethnologist, 1994 groundbreaking Levinson The Teachers College Record, 2008DECOLONIZING ANTHROPOLOGY is part of a broader effort that aims to advance the critical reconstruction of the discipline devoted to understanding humankind in all its diversity and commonality. The utility and power of a decolonized anthropology must continue to be tested and developed. May the results of ethnographic probes--the data, the social and cultural analysis, the theorizing, and the strategies for knowledge application--help scholars envision clearer paths toincreased understanding, a heightened sense of intercultural and international solidarity, and last, but certainly not least, world transformation.TABLE OF CONTENTSForeword by Yolanda T MosesPreface by Kimberly Eison SimmonsAnthropology as an Agent of Transformation: Introductory Comments and Queries by Faye V HarrisonMan and Nature, White and Other by Michael L BlakeyColonized Anthropology: Cargo-Cult Discourse by Pem Davidson BuckOn Ethnography in an Intertextual Situation: Reading Narratives or Desconstructing Discourse? by Glenn H JordanUndoing Fieldwork: Personal, Political, Theoretical and Methodological Implications by Deborah D'Amico-SamuelsEthnography as Politics by Faye V HarrisonConfronting the Ethics of Ethnography: Lessons from Fieldwork in Central American by Philippe BourgeoisThey Exploited Us But We Didn't Feel It Hegemony, Ethnic Militancy, and the Miskitu-Sandinista Conflict by Charles R HaleAnthropology and Liberation by Edmund T GordonMilitarism and Accumulation as Cargo Cult by Angelia GilliamEpilogue by Delmos J Jones

Powells image shows Third edition yet description says 2nd edition. I understand the third edition is soon to be released and may contain additional content. please upgrade and change your description to match the book. Regardless the book is an essential reading for all native Studies and Anthropology students.
