In a recent course in qualitative methods for doctoral students
in Education, my peers and I read Powdermaker's *Stranger and
Friend.* The book generated heated debate over what was

reflect on racism and/or colonialism and anthropological study;

written on the issue of racism and anthropology. I would
appreciate any help and imagine that such a topic may be
addressed in a broad range of sources; consequently, even
general guidance about how to start such a search would be
