History of Anthropology is a series of annual volumes, inaugurated in 1983, each of which treats an important theme in the history of anthropological inquiry. Objects and Others, the third volume, focuses on a number of questions relating to the history of museums and material culture studies: the interaction of museum arrangement and anthropological theory; the tension between anthropological research and popular education; the contribution of museum ethnography to aesthetic practice; the relationship of humanistic and anthropological culture, and of ethnic artefact and fine art; and, more generally, the representation of culture in material objects. As the first work to cover the development of museum anthropology since the mid-nineteenth century, it will be of great interest and value not only to anthropologist, museologists, and historians of science and the social sciences, but also to those interested in "primitive" art and its reception in the Western world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...a timely publication in the History of Anthropology series...makes an important contribution to our understanding of the central role museums played in the development of anthropology from 1850 to 1920. It is one of the earliest voices in the emerging debate about the present state of ethnographic museums and raises a number of important political and philosophical issues that must be addressed in considering the future directions of these institutions." -American Journal of Sociology
