- An important volume for all anthropologists conducting their own primary research, demonstrating that evidence is something they must all possess
- Reveals how the concept of evidence has received little sustained attention in print - especially when compared to related concepts, such as 'fieldwork,' 'truth,' 'facts,' and 'knowledge'
- All contributors share the conviction that anthropology can no longer afford to ignore the importance of the concept of evidence, either for the ways in which anthropologists carry out their work (methodology) or present and justify their findings (epistemology)
- Argues from a variety of theoretical perspectives, and is rare in its ability to orchestrate many different - and vibrant - paradigms and points of view
