"As European colonies in Asia and Africa became independent nations, as the United States engaged in war in Southeast Asia and in covert operations in South America, anthropologists questioned their interactions with their subjects and worried about t he political consequences of government-supported research. By 1970, some spoke of anthropology as ""the child of Western imperialism"" and as ""scientific colonialism."" Ironically, as the link between anthropology and colonialism became more wide ly acc epted within the discipline, serious interest in examining the history of anthropology in colonial contexts diminished. This volume is an effort to initiate a critical historical consideration of the varying ""colonial situations"" in which ( and out o f which) ethnographic knowledge essential to anthropology has been produced. The essays comment on ethnographic work from the middle of the nineteenth century to nearly the end of the twentieth, in regions from Oceania through southeast Asi a, the And aman Islands, and southern Africa to North and South America. The ""colonial situations"" also cover a broad range, from first contact through the establishment of colonial power, from District Officer administrations through white settl er regimes, f rom internal colonialism to international mandates, from early ""pacification"" to wars of colonial liberation, from the expropriation of land to the defense of ecology. The motivations and responses of the anthropologists discussed are equally varied: the romantic resistance of Maclay and the complicity of Kubary in early colonialism Malinowski s salesmanship of academic anthropology Speck s advocacy of Indian land rights Schneider s grappling with the ambiguities of rapport and Turner s faci litation of Kaiapo cinematic activism. ""Provides fresh insights for those who care about the history of science in general and that of anthropology in particular, and a valuable reference for professionals and graduate students."
