      Get this from a library! Darkness in El Dorado: how scientists and journalists devastated the Amazon. [Patrick Tierney] -- Examines the destructive impact of journalists, anthropologists, and scientists on the Yanomami Indians, one of the Amazon Basin's oldest tribes. Novem Following is a statement from University of Michigan Provost Nancy Cantor on the book, "Darkness in El Dorado," by Patrick Tierney, published by W.W. Norton & Co. The supporting research was conducted by the offices of the Executive Vice President for Medical Affairs, Vice President for Research, and General Counsel, and by the Medical School and Department of Anthropology.

      The Kurtzian narrative of how Chagnon achieved the political status of a monster in Amazonia and a hero in academia is truly the heart of Darkness in El Dorado. While some of Tierney's reporting has come under fire, this is nonetheless a revealing book, with a cautionary message that extends well beyond the field of anthropology. Incredibly, this incident is one of the more benign observer effects uncovered by Patrick Tierney in ''Darkness in El Dorado.'' Tierney's exhaustively reported book exposes the horrendous scientific and journalistic exploitation of the Yanomami, the most studied and vilified tribe in the history of anthropology.
