Summary
"The 1980s saw a remarkable infusion of provocative new styles of critical thought in US academia. In anthropology, the classic Writing Culture deeply challenged basic assumptions about the nature of representation, of description, and of subjectivity and objectivity. One of Writing Culture's enduring legacies is the changing nature of anthropological research practice itself, vividly represented in this volume." "Critical Anthropology Now offers ten innovative ethnographic projects that demonstrate how new and more complex locations of research - from the boardrooms of multinational corporations to the chat rooms of the Internet - are giving rise to shifts in the character of both fieldwork and fieldworker."--BOOK JACKET
