“This well-written ethnography of the Mukogodo of Kenya works on a number of levels. It is an engaging introduction to the field of cultural anthropology and to the basics of fieldwork. It touches on a number of important anthropological topics, including the nature of hunter-gatherer societies, definitions of ethnicity, and modernization and inequality in colonial and postcolonial societies….From Mukogodo to Maasai is accessibly written and jargon free, and it would make an excellent introductory text for undergraduates. It is of broader interest as well: Cronk takes the opportunity here to develop, in an unpolemical way, some important arguments about the relationship between culture and human behavior….From Mukogodo to Maasai is an excellent demonstration of the value of bringing rigorous methods and original thinking to bear on some of the perennial concerns of cultural anthropology. It deserves a wide readership.”
