KATE CREHAN GRAMSCI CULTURE AND ANTHROPOLOGY PDF

If class analysis is to be defended well, it needs to be defended not just in areas where it appears to have patent explanatory power-its ability to explain U. And there is little doubt that one of the strongest challenges to Marxism has come from those who defend the autonomy of indigenous cultures. The reasons are complex of course, but a central reason is bound up with the close relation between the defense of indigenous cultures and the postmodern challenge. Most of this review will be devoted to an admiring elaboration of this mapping. This is a serious omission because the affiliated epistemological problems threaten to undermine the defense of class to which Crehan is rightly committed.
