My latest NRO podcast victim is Napoleon Chagnon, the acclaimed and controversial anthropologist. He’s controversial for all the wrong reasons, as my 2000 article on him tries to point out:

Chagnon, according to Tierney and his allies, consciously destroyed thousands of lives. The charges are astonishing, and they’ve been reported virtually everywhere, often without skepticism. There’s only one problem with them: They’re wholly and indisputably false. Chagnon is the target of one of the greatest smear campaigns ever waged against a scholar.

Chagnon is also a proud Michigan man, and so I give you this photo of him.
