Marshall Sahlins b. 1930 is an American anthropologist who played a major role in the development of anthropological theory in the second half of twentieth century. Over a sixty-year career he and his colleagues synthe- sized trends in evolutionary Marxist and ecological anthropology moving them into mainstream thought. Sahlins is considered a critic of reductive theories of human nature an exponent of culture as a key concept in anthropology and a politically engaged intellectual opposed to militarism and imperialism. This collection brings together some of the worlds most distinguished anthropologists to explore and advance Sahlinss legacy. All of the essays are based on original research most dealing with cultural change a major theme of Sahlinss research especially in the contexts of Fijian and Hawaiian soci- eties. Like Sahlinss practice of anthropology these essays display a rigorous humanistic study of cultural forms refusing to accept comfort over accuracy not shirking from the moral implications of their analyses. Contributors in- clude the late Greg Dening one of the most eminent historians of the Pacic Martha Kaplan Patrick Kirch Webb Keane Jonathan Friedman and Joel Robbins with a preface by the late Claude Lvi-Strauss. A volume that will complement the many books and articles by Sahlins himself A Practice of Anthropology is an exciting new addition to the history of anthropological study.

Canada was one of the rst Western countries to sign an agreement to provide development aid to China in 1983 and the Canadian International Development Agency invited universities to cooperate in ways that would facilitate the multiplication of contacts at the thinking level. In Canadian Universities in Chinas Transformation leading scholars from Canadian and Chinese universities elaborate on the historical experi- ence of collaboration in areas as different as environmental science marine science engineering management law agriculture medicine education minority cultures and womens studies. Contributors use theoretical frames such as dependency theory human capital the knowledge economy and Habermass theory of communicative action to facilitate a striking dialogue between Canadian and Chinese perspectives on common questions. They provide insights into factors that ensured the long-term success of some partnerships as well as barriers that hindered others and vivid lessons for current collaboration. Case studies include a project that began with the training of Chinese judges developing into reciprocal programs in legal education in China Canada and Latin America and an examination of how joint environmental research has had policy impacts at national and international levels. Presenting the story of universities working together in the era after the Cultural Revolution Canadian Universities in Chinas Transformation is a unique account of partnerships in knowledge production and application and their resulting impacts.
