Description - Genealogies for the Present in Cultural Anthropology by Bruce M. Knauft

From the 1960s to the early 1990s, anthropology has struggled with the tense relation between modern and postmodern sensibilities. Today the field requires humanism to self-consciously mediate an appreciation of cultural diversity with a critique of representation and inequality. By so doing, important perspective is gained on theoretical initiatives such as postmodernism, cultural studies, post-Marxism, modern/postmodern feminism, and multiculturalism.
