Anthropologists from North America reflect on their experience of writing for the general public rather than academic or professional peers, and of reading popular texts that deal with the same themes anthropology does. Howard Zinn begins with an essay on speaking truth to power. Other topics include saggin' and braggin,' remembering Octavia Butler, believing in anthropology as literature, writing in Zora Neale Hurston's shoes, off the shelf and into oblivion, and taking chances. The 18 essays are from panels held at annual meetings of the American Anthropological Association in 1999, 2000, 2003, and 2005. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
