Summary
Elsie Clews Parsons was a pioneering feminist, an eminent anthropologist, and an ardent social critic. In Elsie Clews Parsons, Desley Deacon reconstructs Parsons's efforts to overcome gender biases in both academia and society. "Wonderfully illuminating. ... Parsons's work resonates strikingly to current trends in anthropology."?George W. Stocking, Jr., Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute. "This is the biography of a woman so interesting and effective?a cross between Margaret Mead and Georgia O'Keeffe. ... A nuanced portrait of this vivid woman."?Tanya Luhrma
