Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0774812737, Paperback)

Despite Canada's longstanding tradition of anthropological study, there has been little significant examination to date of the discipline's historical development. Historicizing Canadian Anthropology takes a major step towards rectifying this omission, and provides the first wide-ranging coverage of the topic to be published in over two decades.

Writing from the position that Canadian anthropology is unique in its approach to the discipline, the contributors to this landmark collection reflect on its definition and scope and explore the degree to which a uniquely Canadian tradition affects anthropological theory, practice, and reflexivity. This volume addresses key issues in the evolution of the discipline: the shaping influence of Aboriginal-anthropological encounters; the challenge of compiling a history for the Canadian context; and the place of international and institutional relations.

Historicizing Canadian Anthropology is a watershed that will revitalize critical reflexivity within the field. With contributions from a broad cross-section of anthropologists - from senior scholars to doctoral students - this book is essential reading for practicing Canadian anthropologists, their students, and others who seek to understand the historical contours of the field.
