A Critical Essay on John H. Bodley’s Victims of Progress

Rogelio Garcia-Contreras

Let me begin this essay by using the words of the professor who gave me the opportunity to do this work. Peter W. Van Arsdale wrote in his review of the book Traditional African Societies: "One of the strongest endorsements that a book can receive is that other scholars not only begin using and citing it, but begin building their own research upon the ideas it contains,sometimes even in unexpected settings.” Such is the case with Mayfield Publishing Company’s third edition of Victims of Progress, by John H. Bodley.
