Nationalism, Politics And Anthropology
Review by Robin Palmer
NATIONALISM, POLITICS & ANTHROPOLOGY: A Tale of Two South Africans
Ilana van Wyk, Jimmy Pieterse
Professor Robin Palmer, Faculty of Anthropology, Rhodes University, South Africa, reviews the recent Langaa RPCIG, Cameroon title:
"Nationalism, Politics and Anthropology is an exceptionally well-produced book of which any mainstream publisher would be proud. While convention behoves a reviewer to find some fault in the book under examination, nothing glaring has stood out. I hope more of these interactions between generations of African anthropologists emerge from the workshop as they make for highly original anthropology that has relevance beyond its region."
