Praise

“The chapters in this eclectic volume span sixteenth-century traveler accounts, the 1892 International Exhibition, a meeting between Boas and Freud, a previously unrecognized Jewish anthropologist in Austria under national socialism, several Cold War controversies, and a digital indigenous-civic collaborative history project. One of the gems is a personal retrospective by the late Anthony Wallace published here for the first time. This volume contributes to cultural studies and the history of science, revealing hitherto unrecognized entanglements between anthropology and the personal, social, and political conditions that continue to shape its elaboration.”—M. Eleanor Nevins, associate professor of anthropology at Middlebury College and author of Lessons from Fort Apache: Beyond Language Endangerment and Maintenance
