Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The most prolific ethnographic filmmaker in the world, a pioneer of cinema verite, and one of the earliest ethnographers of African societies, Jean Rouch (1917-) remains a controversial and often misunderstood figure in histories of anthropology and film. This situation, Paul Stoller suggests, results largely from the neglect of Rouch's voluminous and ongoing ethnographic writings. Stoller, who has done more fieldwork among the Songhay of Niger than anyone other than Rouch himself, here presents for the first time an extensive analysis of the ethnography in Rouch's writings and films. By doing so, he seeks to clarify Rouch's approach, hi position, and his significance to contemporary anthropological debates.

About the Author

Paul Stoller is a professor of anthropology at West Chester University of Pennsylvania. He is the author of many books, including ethnographies, biographies, and memoirs. In 1994 he was awarded a prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship. In 2002, the American Anthropological Association named him the recipient of the Robert B. Textor Award for Excellence in Anthropology. He lectures frequently both in the United States and Europe and has appeared on various NPR programs as well as on the National Geographic Television Network.
