Noted anthropologist Clifford Geertz analyzes the writings of anthropologists, specifically ethnographers. What makes a reader take an account seriously, he argues, is the ability of the researcher to capture on paper the experience of having been to a place, not just his ability to report facts.

An amazing mix of literary criticism and ethnological overview. I was worried that since I haven't read most of the source material, that I'd be a bit in the dark, but Geertz does an excellent job of making the writings in question (and even the work of Foucault and Barthes that he uses to look at them) accessible.

Geertz is my favorite anthropologist and in this text talks about how anthropologists write--admittedly, he writes more aesthetically than most, and has been accused of being non-objective, but no anthropologist can report on a culture without the bias of his upbringing. He doesn't exaggerate, or fabricate, but relays things as he sees them--as beautiful, fascinating, sensual, etc. He's an artist really.
