philosophers; the passionate engagement of the authors with the ethics of appropriation of subaltern cultures by dominant Western cultures; the incisiveness of the debates over each theme discussed (one author debating with another before giving his/her own point
of view in the shape of an individual article); the soundness of theoretical arguments and the stunning and provocative examples debated." (Journal of the Royal Astronomical Institute, 2011)
“Young and Brunk present an extraordinarily cerebral and thorough exploration of cultural appropriation as it is experienced in the arts, religion, and archaeology. Seemingly diverse and even disparate areas that are the targets of cultural appropriation are intricately woven together with the thread of the transmission of information from one culture to another.” (PsycCRITIQUES, April 2010)

"This breakthrough collection is a splendid demonstration of the benefits of collaborative interdisciplinary research to produce strikingly original scholarship. We are the beneficiaries. Talented teams of leading philosophers with outstanding specialists in a wide range of disciplines examine the enormously complex ethical challenges of cultural appropriation. This is a model for scholarship in an increasingly complex era of intellectual globalization."
