Culture and Truth is a call for a new approach to thinking and writing about culture. Exposing the inadequacies of old conceptions of static, monolithic culture, and of detached, "objective" observers, the book argues instead for social science to acknowledge and celebrate diversity, narrative, emotion, and the unavoidability of subjectivity. In this edition, a new introduction gives powerful reasons for protecting diversity within and outside the academy.

Praise

Village Voice
"The most engaging treatment yet of anthropology's predicament and the larger dilemmas of ethnicity, culture, and politics that have caused it."
