Description:Bronislaw Malinowski (1884-1942) changed the way anthropological field studies were carried out. He worked on a remote group of Pacific islands and lived for long periods among the people he was studying. A brilliant linguist, he learned their language. Malinowski's insight into these people's mastery of their world permanently altered westerners' views of them.
