Editorial Reviews

Review

A seminal work that is strongly recommended reading.

(The Midwest Book Review)

Essential reading for those who are interested in the link between colonial politics and ethnographic practices.

(Muriam Haleh Davis Arab Studies Journal 1900-01-00)

With its translation of lesser-known texts, thoughtful juxtaposition of texts and images, and, above all, beautiful presentation of the photographs, this book provides a fascinating glimps into the working process and intellectual origins of the most important scholars of the twentieth century.

(H-France Review 1900-01-00)
