Colin Turnbull made a name for himself with "The Forest People", his acclaimed study of African Pygmies. His second book, however, "The Mountain People", ignited a swirl of controversy within anthropology and tainted Turnbull's reputation as a respected anthropologist. In this scrupulously researched biography, Roy Richard Grinker charts the rise and fall of this colourful controversial man -from his Scottish family and British education to travels in Africa and his love affair with Joe Towles. Grinker, noted for his own work on the Pygmies, gives readers a fascinating account of Turnbull's life and work.
Roy Richard Grinker is a professor of anthropology at The George Washington University, a position once held by Colin Turnbull. He is the author of "Houses in the Rainforest: Ethnicity and Inequality among Farmers and Foragers in Central Africa"; "Perspectives on Africa: A Reader in Culture, History, and Representation"; and "Korea and its Futures."
