With Oneman gone, we had to look for someone who could fill his shoes. You can imagine our delight when we were contacted by Napoleon Chagnon! His book on the Yanamamo was one of the first texts I ever read in Anthropology, and is one of the most famous ethnographies of the late sixties, early seventies. Now a professor emeritus at UC Santa Barbara, Chagnon has long been a lurker on Savage Minds.
Some Anthropologists still remember the Darkness in El Dorado controversy, and that will certainly be one of the first things that “The Napster” (as he would like to be known online) will be addressing in his posts, so I won’t say anything more about that here.
Please join us in extending a hearty welcome to The Napster!
