Synopsis: A multicultural outlook scrutinizing Mead's impact on Western anthropology

From the Inside Flap: "...valuable information, ideas, and contrasts."
—Choice

"This book is a remarkable portrait of a scholar and a field, both fierce and fair. The conjecture of perspectives—ethnography and empire, personal history and public practice, voices from the Pacific as well as the United States—makes a document important for assessing anthropology, both past and future."
—Dell Hymes, University of Virginia, and editor of Reinventing Anthropology

"Mead's attitude toward and activities in relation to her country's foreign and military policies are under scrutiny here, and so is her relationship with the subjects of her research. Such critical assessment of leading scholars is crucial to improvement of academic research and scholastic work and building trust, confidence, and good relations among poe0ples of the world."
—Amelia Rokotuivuna, Young Women's Christian Association, Fiji, and former Chair of the Nuclear-Free Pacific Conference
