Glenn Bowman, University of Kent and Editor, Journal of theRoyal Anthropological Institute

Howard Morphy, Australian National University

Essays onnational traditions of anthropology intersect with those organizedtopically, resulting in some surprising synergies." RichardHandler, University of Virginia and Editor, History ofAnthropology
