Full title: Navigators of the contemporary : why ethnography matters / David A. Westbrook.
Main author: Westbrook, David A.
Format: Book           


Summary: As the image of the anthropologist exploring exotic locales and filling in blanks on the map has faded, the belief in the relevance of cultural anthropology has likewise diminished. This book argues that the traditional tool of the cultural anthropologist - ethnography - can still function as a way to understand our world.
