as a non antro I'm getting the idea that this branch of scholarly
study, in this country (US) has been driven by military and economic
interests abroad. I see many articles of ... what to take in expeditions
abroad.... ethic considerations of studies abroad ... violence among the
yanomami ... I'm still lurking for some anthro scholar to address
the aids epidemic from any antro point(s) of view.

In the new t political correctness poverty, racism and sexism are
inventions or even creations of liberals. And many believe it.
probably aids is in the same situation?
