Anthropologists as Persons Aug. 14 2005
By Emanuel Marx - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is the tenth volume in the justly celebrated series, 'History of Anthropology'. The series, started by G.W. Stocking, Jr., has been instrumental in setting up a new and thriving sub-discipline of anthropology. By critically examining the past, these writers are helping anthropology in its desperate struggle to survive and reinvent itself, for the future of this (or any other) discipline is not at all asured. Each of the seven articles in this volume deals with the relations between well-known anthropologists and 'significant others', such as a spouse, a son, students or colleagues. All the articles are solidly documented and well written. The articles that I found most moving, were Engelke's, dealing with the relations between Vic and Edie Turner and Schumaker's on Max Gluckman as director of the Rhodes-Livingstone Institute. But all the articles, without exception, are extremely interesting, each presenting a clearcut and refutable argument. They open a discussion that, hopefully, will be continued in years to come.
