Editorial Reviews


"A gold mine for teaching, and the rarest of ethnographic studies." - Jeffrey Feldman, New York University


A gold mine for teaching and the rarest of ethnographic studies, Butler's study carries us into the heart of one of the most divisive cultural firestorms to ever hit museums. The result is an insider's view of an exhibition as it shapes the lives of real people—forcing them to confront the legacy of colonialism and changing how they see the world and each other.

(Jeffrey Feldman, New York University)
