Synopsis

Expanding American Anthropology, 1945-1980: A Generation Reflects takes an inside look at American anthropology's participation in the enormous expansion of the social sciences after World War II. During this time the discipline of anthropology itself came of age, expanding into diverse subfields, frequently on the initiative of individual practitioners. The Association of Senior Anthropologists of the American Anthropological Association (AAA) called upon a number of its leaders to give accounts of their particular innovations in the discipline. This volume is the result of the AAA venture--a set of primary documents on the history of American anthropology at a critical juncture. In preparing the volume, the editors endeavoured to maintain the feeling of "oral history" within the chapters and to preserve the individual voices of the contributors. There are many books on the history of anthropology, but few that include personal essays from such a broad swath of different perspectives. The passing of time will make this volume increasingly valuable in understanding the development of American anthropology from a small discipline to the profession of over ten thousand practitioners.

Alice Beck Kehoe is professor emeritus of anthropology at Marquette University, and author of a dozen books, including C"ontroversies in Archaeology, The Ghost Dance: Ethnohistory and Revitalization, "and "North American Indians: A Comprehensive Account. "Paul L. Doughty is Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus of anthropology and Latin American studies at the University of Florida. He is coauthor of "Peru: A Cultural History" and "Peasants, Power, and Applied Social Change: Vicos as a Model."
