This volume is intended as a reflective yet practical guide for anthropologists working or thinking of working with lawyers and lawyers working or thinking of working with anthropologists. Two of the contributors, Randy Frances Kandel and Michael Davidson, are both anthropologists and attorneys; three, Peter Rigby, James Loucky, and Isabel Wright, are anthropologists who work closely with attorneys; and two, Peter Sevareid and Lynn Alvarez, are attorneys who work closely with anthropologists. Because the readers of NAPA Bulletins are primarily anthropologists, this volume takes somewhat of an anthropologist′s eye view in rendering familiar the exotic culture of the law. But we believe attorneys may, with equal profit and pleasure, read it "in reverse" to gain insight into the exotic culture of the anthropologist.
How Lawyers and Anthropologists Think Differently.
