Summary

This volume is at once an introduction to anthropology, an account of a personal odyssey, and a call for action. Acknowledged as one of anthropology's most brilliant practitioners, Robin Fox shows in a series of linked essays on such topics as race, evolution, sex, marriage, language, and witchcraft, and the range, potential, and inheritent weaknesses of anthropology as a science. The author offers a view of the human side of anthropology, as well as its ruthlessly professional side--a side he characterizes as so obsessed with field work and obsolete ideology that it is failing its task of exploring human nature.
