A Cautious Silence: The Politics of Australian Anthropology

by Gray, Geoffrey

Condition: Near Fine

Canberra, Australia: Aboriginal Studies Press, 2007. This is the first comprehensive history of modern Australian social anthropology that examines the forces that shaped and framed the formation of a distinctive anthropological practice; it reveals the struggle to establish and consolidate anthropology as an academic discipline in Australia, which required anthropologists to demonstrate that their discipline was the predominant interpreter of indigenous life; it considers the ways that the new discipline controlled the development of knowledge about colonized peoples that could be used by colonial administrators to manage, control, and advance the indigenous population (black pictorial cover with photo on the front, spine has slight reading crease; otherwise a bright, clean, tight copy; in stock & available for immediate shipment). Trade Paperback. Near Fine.
