Billings, Dorothy K., 1933-. 2016. Book review: The baseless postmodern attack on anthropology. In: In Defense of Anthropology. By Herbert S. Lewis. New Brunswick, NJ: Transaction, 2014. Current Anthropology, vol. 57:no.4:pp 530–532
This is an important book. It should be used in every anthropology course on history and theory. It is a collection of papers, most of which have been published elsewhere, introduced by an overview. Lewis begins with three chapters that give an account of the way "anthropology underwent a remarkable and far-ranging transformation beginning in the 1960s".
