  • William A. Douglass
Part of the St Antony’s / Macmillan Series book series


Bernard S. Cohn, in a seriocomic look at the relationship between what he termed ‘anthropologyland’ and ‘historyland’, raises many profound questions that are particularly germane to the anthropological enterprise conducted within the European peasant village context. Cohn (as have others) notes that anthropology emerged as a function of European colonial expansion, particularly during the early twentieth century and the subsequent spread of American political hegemony in the aftermath of the Second World War (Cohn 1980: 202–5).
