"If there is one book that redefines anthropology for the 21st century, this is it. It is a ground-breaking study that takes us to the ethical heart of the social sciences. Using the Yanomami controversy as a lens for examining anthropology itself, Borofsky asks anthropologists — from introductory students to advanced scholars — how we should craft the values that define our work and ourselves. This is an essential book for our times."—Carolyn Nordstrom, University Notre Dame

"What better way to learn anthropology than through one of its great controversies? Written in a lucid and concise manner, Yanomami is really two books in one: First, it is a riveting, issues-oriented text that is ideal for sparking interest and provoking discussion among introductory students; second it is an invaluable analysis of critical disciplinary questions that every anthropologist and anthropologist-in-the-making need ponder."—Alex Hinton, Rutgers University
