About the Author

Jack Goody is Emeritus Professor of Social Anthropology at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of St John's College.


"In this brief but rich essay, continuing and amplifying the argument he has presented in The Theft of History and elsewhere, Jack Goody drives one more nail into the coffin of Western ethnocentrism." Peter Burke, University of Cambridge "The author is a venerable national treasure. In this essay, he demonstrates undiminished powers - revisiting the folly of Eurocentrism, which has been the major theme of his work, and proposing a new way of understanding it." Felipe Fernandez-Armesto, University of Notre Dame
