Product description


"This comprehensively researched biography by Cole is a poignant and fascinating look at a troubled career within the history of American anthropology. . . . Cole's reevaluation is written with balance, sensitivity, and a real affection for her subject."—Library Journal
(Library Journal)

“Sally Cole’s perceptive and engaging biography does much to reclaim Landes’ work from the margins of anthropology. . . . Cole does not flinch from portraying the less attractive parts of Landes’ personality . . . but the tone of her book is overwhelmingly one of appreciation for her contributions.”—Louise Lamphere, Current Anthropology
(Louise Lamphere Current Anthropology)

About the Author

Sally Cole is a professor of anthropology at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. She is the author of several books, including Women of the Praia: Work and Lives in a Portuguese Coastal Community.
