Editorial Reviews

Review

"With the voice of an essayist that combine the artistic sensibility of a Bresson with the writerly craft of a Barthes, MacDougall thinks through a theory of the documentary in terms of epistemological issues. . . . [T]his is a first-rate book."--Choice

"David MacDougall . . . has carried out more research in non-Western cultural contexts than most academic anthropologists and, as this book attests, is well read in the literature. . . . The twenty or so films that he has both shot and directed have been highly influential in establishing a model of good practice in ethnographic film-making. MacDougall also has the ability to write elegantly and reflectively about what he does."--Paul Henley, London Review of Books
