About this product
- DescriptionAnthropologists have a long tradition of prescient diagses of world events. Possessing a kwledge of culture, society, and history t always shared by the media's talking heads, anthropologists have played a crucial role in educating the general reader on the public debates from World War I to the second Gulf War. This anthology collects over fifty commentaries by ted anthropologists such as Margaret Mead, Franz Boas, and Marshall Sahlins who seek to understand and explain the profound repercussions of U.S. involvement in the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Frequently drawing on their own fieldwork, the anthropologists go beyond the headlines to draw connections between indigeus cultures, corporate globalization, and contemporary political and ecomic crises. Venues range from the op-ed pages of internationally rewned newspapers such as the <cite>New York Times and the <cite>Washington Post to magazine articles and television interviews. Special sections entitled Prelude to September 11 and Anthropological Interpretations of September 11 include articles that provided many Americans with their first substantial introduction to the history of Islam, Central Asia, and the Middle East. Each article includes a brief introduction contextualizing the commentary.
