What is the future of anthropology? What role will anthropologists play in the globalized world of the 21st century? How can anthropology move beyond its origins as the discipline assigned to study the "savage"? These are some of the questions that Michel Rolph Trouillot poses in this book. Trouillot explores the history of anthropology, and challenges contemporary anthropologists to radically rethink the utility of the concept of culture, their emphasis upon fieldwork as the central methodology of the discipline, and their relationships to the people whom they study.
