    BUT, most of the A.A. reading I've done, is simply worse quality anthropological research. It has less data, more opinions of the researcher about their informants lives and political opinions.
Good point. Their goals might sound good in theory. The reality might be something else. As they say: In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, theory and practice are different. (or something like that).
