The Yąnomamö 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 author’s extensive fieldwork, includes a brief discussion of events and changes that have occurred since 1996. The Legacy 6th Edition of The Yąnomamö also includes a Q&A interview with the author, which reveals his own perspective on his life’s work, reflects changes within the field of anthropology itself, and presents the author’s views on the recent decade of controversies that his work has inspired among critics (including some anthropologists).
