    schema:description "An interesting question, Stocking writes, is one that arouses just the right amount of anxiety. That anxiety may be the ultimate source of his remarkable intellectual energy and output. In this book he traces the intersecting vectors of his professional and personal lives, concluding with a coda that scrutinizes his life after retirement, when advancing age, cancer, and depression changed the tenor of his reflections about both his life and his work."@en ;

    schema:description "George W. Stocking, Jr., has spent a professional lifetime exploring the history of anthropology, and his findings have shaped anthropologists' understanding of their field for two generations. Through his meticulous research, Stocking has shown how such forces as politics, race, institutional affiliations, and personal relationships have influenced the discipline from its beginnings. In this autobiography, he looks into his own "black box," dissecting his upbringing, his politics, even his motivations in writing about himself. The result is a book systematically, at times brutally, self-questioning."@en ;
    schema:description ""George Stocking's scholarship, by rooting anthropological ideas in complex historical conjunctures, has had a major impact across the humanities and social sciences. His new book takes us behind the scenes of erudition to reveal a process of ceaseless, unsparing personal inquiry. A rigorous, deeply felt, courageous performance."--James Clifford, University of California, Santa Cruz."@en ;
