Thomas Hylland Eriksen. Engaging Anthropology takes an unflinching look at why the discipline has not gained the popularity and respect it deserves in the twenty-first century. Eriksen argues that anthropology needs to rediscover the art of narrative and abandon arid analysis and, more provocatively, anthropologists need to lose their fear of plunging.

Thomas Hylland Eriksen has for many years studied, and written about, identity politics, ethnicity, nationalism and globalisation from a comparative perspective. Engaging Anthropology: The Case for a Public Presence. ISBN 978-1-84520-064-0. He has also published popular books, textbooks, polemical books and essays on a variety of topics. From 2010 to 2013, he directed ‘the Alna project’, an interdisciplinary project focusing on place and conditions for belonging in new suburb in eastern Oslo.

Anthropology will engage with public issues, or it will wither. This is the central message of Thomas Eriksen's stimulating polemic. As he warns, 'Anthropologists must stop fidgeting, and get on with it'. His provocative essay is easy to read and full of key reasons why anthropologists today more than ever need to face the world and not just one another. We have no option but to put our message across, yet do so at our own peril. Jeremy MacClancy, Oxford Brookes University.

Anthropology ought to have changed the world. What went wrong? Engaging Anthropology takes an unflinching look at why the discipline has not gained the popularity and respect it deserves in the twenty-first century. From identity to multicultural society, new technologies to work, globalization to marginalization, anthropology has a vital contribution to make.While showcasing the intellectual power of the discipline, Eriksen takes the anthropological community to task for its unwillingness to engage more proactively with the media in a wide range of current debates. If anthropology matters as a key tool with which to understand modern society beyond the ivory towers of academia, why are so few anthropologists willing to come forward in times of national or global crisis? Eriksen argues that anthropology needs to rediscover the art of narrative and abandon arid analysis and, more provocatively, anthropologists need to lose their fear of plunging into the vexed issues modern societies present. Engaging Anthropology makes an impassioned plea for positioning anthropology as the universal intellectual discipline. Eriksen has provided the wake-up call we were all awaiting.

The real problem to my mind is that the cultural purpose and structure of religion prohibits the truth about human evolution to emerge. We're lied to from birth by parents, clergy and teachers as well, an obvious admission that cultures are controlled by their belief systems. Sort of a hangover I think, from the old days before science, before anyone knew anything.
Amazing isn't it, that a religion such as Christianity can make people belief that all of the previous thousands of gods and goddesses before it didn't even exist, or that the Caananites hadn't been around for a couple of thousand of years themselves. Every so often I ask people around me if they believe in Evolution and about half say no. Again it's the churches, they have power from the day a child is born. I mean, after all, evolution is both a theory and a fact isn't it?

As a required text for my Post Grad Anthropology paper I dreaded receiving this book. However I've been happily surprised with it's readability. The intended audience is somewhere between academic and your every day Joe Blo and whilst this level usually bores academics, enough references to previsouly published works (everything from Pinker to Strauss) have been included to keep them interactive.
I would highly recommend this book both as a holiday text and as an addition to study.
