I really liked Maureen McHugh’s “The Cost to be Wise,” and would assign to a class if I were teaching a fieldwork oriented anthropology class. It made me think of Doomsday Book, but told from the point of view of one of the “primitives.”A nice review is here. Apparently expanded and published as a novel called Mission Child.
