"This excellent collection delivers on critical content, but at the same time does not overwhelm the reader and leaves plenty of space for more research, discovery of the authors’ original works and discussions in classrooms.
[W]hat I found very interesting during the reading and reviewing process was how many ‘meta insights’ and ‘Aha’ moments I gained from the collection with regard to anthropological history and its writing and knowledge discourses.
All in all, Critical Anthropology is an extremely useful collection that delivers plenty of critical inroads into the contents and disciplinary aspects of late 20th century anthropology in the context of Marxist critique and the emergence of a broader self-reflective turn.

"Each individual essay is a masterpiece of investigative scholarship. The cumulative result is an outstanding contribution to the growing library of contemporary anthropological studies and a very highly recommended addition to professional and academic library Anthropology reference collections and supplemental reading lists."
