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, 2008 DECOLONIZING 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.
