The Yanomamo of Venezuela and Brazil are a truly remarkable people, and one of the few sovereign tribal societies left on earth. This classic ethnography, based on the authors extensive fieldwork, includes a brief discussion of events and changes that have occurred since 1996. The Legacy 6th Edition of The Yanomamo also includes a Q&A interview with the author, which reveals his own perspective on his lifes work, reflects changes within the field of anthropology itself, and presents the authors views on the recent decade of controversies that his work has inspired among critics (including some anthropologists).
