Truly an enjoyable read and I look forward to Nigel Barley’s other writings Lots of people went to urban or agricultural societies, did research on less all-encompassing subjects and still turned up with interesting results. And in trying physical conditions, when people have absolutely no idea about what you are doing, it’s natropologo more difficult.

Gives a great impression of what field work for an ethnographer in the ‘s? This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

Very amusing piece of work. Want to Read saving….

Thanks for telling us about the problem. But, let’s face it, bywhen Nigel Barley set off for field work in Cameroon, the pattern of going off to some remote tribe or isolated people and trying to “re-construct” their whole culture for the edification of readers and Ph.


On my very first visit to a Dowayo beer party, this was put severely to the test.

El antropólogo inocente

As an anthropologist myself, I related to almost everything here. Not only is it the way to know a particular place and culture in depth, but it helps you to understand how all those other works lining the shelves of college libraries were brought to fruition.

Some of the best, most honest, most powerful and moving story-telling is to be found in non-fiction, like this book by Nigel Barley, who as a young lecturer in anthropology traveled to Africa to spend 18 months doing fieldwork among the Dowayo in northern Cameroon. Though, it didn’t change my mind about going for archaeology haha.

Refresh and try again. Desopilante, entre otras, la escena en la que es acosado por una mujer en la puerta de una precaria ducha And obviously other readers also found it screamingly antropilogo.

El antropólogo inocente by Nigel Barley (2 star ratings)

Although Cameroon is far from where I grew up in Southern Africa, many of the truths hold and I found myself laughing aloud on multiple occasions. Several more calabashes followed. Anyone who has spent any kind of time dealing with the bureaucracy of visas and international research or nlgel has tried to make sincere sense of a foreign culture will recognize Barley’s frustration a frustration he portrays in a hilarious simplicity.

I though it was screamingly funny, and have been searching for antrlpologo book to read again ever since.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who has found themselves living in a cross-cultural situation for an extended period of time. Tropical bats spend their entire time flying into obstacles with a horrible thudding noise. Luxor rated it it was ok Aug 05, antorpologo Kindle Editionpages.


When you think about anthropology fl often about long, dry books about cultures but this one was really funny and clever, light and honest too. Nigel Barley isn’t sure he wants to do actual fieldwork as an anthropologist, but since it seems to be expected, and he’s got nothing else particularly interesting to do, he goes to Africa to study the culture of the Dawayo people.

Por ejemplo, Barley descubre un nido de escorpiones en su choza y sale chillando y agitando los brazos en dowayo aproximativo “bestias de fuego, bestias de fuego!

Kerstin rated it it was ok Jan 09, Mainly because of how much it made me think about my own environment.

Much has been written on the excellence of bats’ navigation equipment. Tropical bats spend their entire time flying into obstacles with a horrible thudding noise. What I mean is that Barley did not have to undergo the difficulties that he did; he could have chosen a less-rigorous location or topic. It licked the calabash with relish.
