Synopsis:

Critics against Culture: Anthropological Observers of Mass Society—a collection of essays on the history of anthropology focused on Benedict, Boas, Sapir, and modernist thought by one of American anthropology’s leading scholars—explores the roots of anthropology’s early involvement with the study of American society. The essays making up this volume, focused on the critique of mass society and the history of the culture concept, examine Boasian anthropologists as critics of mass society. The book also includes two new, unpublished essays: one on Alexis de Tocqueville and Margaret Mead, the other on Jules Henry and Richard Hoggart. Handler offers a striking analysis of Boasian cultural criticism and the intersection between anthropology, American studies, and cultural studies.

About the Author: Richard Handler is professor of anthropology at University of Virginia. His several books include Nationalism and the Politics of Culture in Quebec, published by the University of Wisconsin Press, and a book-length interview with David Schneider, Schneider on Schneider. Handler is also coauthor of Jane Austen and the Fiction of Culture and, with Eric Gable, of The New History in an Old Museum.
