really liked it

A wonderful read shredding introspection-worthy wisdom. A perspective on a collective story-arc of societies/communities including that of Anthropologists.

Being new to the technicality of anthropology, this was afresh a view on how the department evolved, devolved alongside infighting and was critical in modern views or outlooks of accepting/respecting other cultures.

However, am not sure if the author can be so sure about the details of these historic figures in their fields. In some pages, it looked like the author camped next to these thinkers and wrote the lines; which doesn’t flavour to be very authentic.

A lovely book, nevertheless.
