Product description

Review

"This remarkable and ambitious work expertly takes both a long-view and close-ups of the main currents of twentieth-century French anthropological research and thinking. Travel writing, anthropology's relation to surrealism, the dissolution of science-literature unity in belles-lettres, and structuralism into post-structuralism are all systematically addressed with great insights, great turns of phrase (caught well in translation), and fresh interpretations."--George Marcus, University of California, Irvine.

"Richly detailed and brilliantly argued, "Far Afield" portrays mid-twentieth century French anthropology as a complex negotiation of 'literary' and 'scientific' pressures. Debaene offers acute readings of classic and lesser-known works in a sustained engagement with fundamental problems of cross-cultural representation."--James Clifford, University of California, Santa Cruz
