As explained by Julie Campbell, an anthropologist who has been a consultant to companies such as Mobil Oil and Arco Indonesia, companies who blunder their public relations with cultures very different from their own in their initial forays into a region are likely to be prevented from returning.
It's a relatively new concern, of course; in past centuries, all a Western power had to do was to subdue a native people and then exploit their natural resources.
This is where a cultural anthropologist such as Campbell comes in, who started doing her own research into various tribes in the early 1980s.

Claude Levi-Strauss is a French anthropologist, most well-known for his development of structural anthropology.
In his book The Elementary Structures of Kinship, Levi-Strauss argued that kinship relations--which are fundamental aspects of any culture's organization--represent a specific kind of structure; you might think of genealogical charts, with their symbols for father and mothers, sisters and brothers, as an example of kinship systems represented as structures.

The only way to prevent this boundary from arising is for the anthropologist to incorporate into his writing the participatory aspect of his experiences with the people he has lived among.
Geertz exemplifies this by saying that death is something universal, something that happens everywhere, among every kind of people, no matter which race, color or gender, whether adult or children; yet anthropologists have minimized this fact when describing death within their people group by focusing on the exotic, curious and sometimes violent rituals.
