"An engaging, intelligent, and well-written study that seeks to enrich our understanding of [a] significant strand of British modernist fiction by placing it in dialogue with the concurrently-emerging practice of fieldwork ethnography." - James Buzard, Professor and Head, Literature Faculty, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
"Snyder s British Fiction and Cross-Cultural Encounters is a coherent, complex, and persuasive interpretation of the ethnographic aspects of a half-century of British fiction, from the late Victorian period to the mid-modernist period.Snyder not only incisively makes the case that the authors here treated-Haggard, Kingsley, Wells, Conrad, Woolf, Forster, Lawrence, and Huxley-were exposed to and influenced by then-contemporary ethnography, but that they infused both ethnographic concerns and methods into their fiction. This is a formidable and convincing work." Marc Manganaro, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and Professor of English, Gonzaga University
