This revised second edition of Ethics and the Profession of Anthropology renews the challenge to anthropologists to engage in a dialogue concerning their commitment to professional ethical conduct. With a majority of new chapters, this edition redefines what it means to conduct anthropological research ethically, as the discipline becomes less isolated from allied fields in the physical and behavioral sciences and comes to terms with the global changes that affect its practice.
