Suggested by Public Anthropologist: Margaret Mead

Public Anthropologist‘s suggested reading today is Margaret Mead by Paul Shankman.

Mead is arguably one of the most prominent anthropological figures of the twentieth century, an influential scholar who loved her public role, as Robin Fox emphasized in 1978 on the New York Times. Shankman’s book revisits Mead’s professional and personal trajectory by offering an accessible and informative introduction for anyone interested in learning more about the work and life of one of the firsts public anthropologists.
