The publishers say of it that field work in its personal and objective dimension is placed under a kind of microscope. The book is a must for all field workers in the social sciences. That claim does not seem to me excessive. —Edmund Leach, New York Review of BooksThere are few books which are as informative of what it means to be a field-worker in social science as Hortense Powdermakers Stranger and Friend.

This book should be must reading both for scholars and students. —Seymour M. Lipset, Harvard UniversityStranger and Friend is a passionate plea for anthropology as a human discipline as well as a science, as an all-engrossing life experience as well as a profession, and increasingly as a subject in the curriculum of graduate and undergraduate studies. —Margaret Mead, American Museum of Natural HistoryThis is just the kind of book needed in anthropology today. It tells objectively, but in warm and human terms, how important research was done. It contributes to methodology and to the history of the science of anthropology.

—Charles Wagley, Columbia UniversityThis is an essential book for anyone interested in the problems of an anthropologist at work. —Cornelius Osgood, Peabody Museum of Natural History
