Om Elsie Clews Parsons

Elsie Clews Parsons was a pioneering feminist, an eminent anthropologist, and an ardent social critic. In Elsie Clews Parsons, Desley Deacon reconstructs Parsons's efforts to overcome gender biases in both academia and society."Wonderfully illuminating. . . . Parsons's work resonates strikingly to current trends in anthropology."-George W. Stocking, Jr., Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute"This is the biography of a woman so interesting and effective-a cross between Margaret Mead and Georgia O'Keeffe. . . . A nuanced portrait of this vivid woman."-Tanya Luhrmann, New York Times Book Review"A marvelous new book about the life of Elsie Clews Parsons. . . . It's as though she is sitting on the next rock, a contemporary struggling with the same issues that confront women today: how to combine work, love and child-rearing into one life."-Abigail Trafford, Washington Post"Parsons's splendid life and work continue to illuminate current puzzles about acculturation and diversity. "-New Yorker
