About the Author:

William W. Fitzhugh is a curator in the Department of Anthropology at the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, and Director of the Museum's Arctic Studies Center. He graduated from Dartmouth College and received his Ph.D. from Harvard University.

Aron Crowell is Director of the Alaska office of the Arctic Studies Center of the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution. A specialist in Arctic archeology and anthropology, his fieldwork has centered on St. Lawrence Island and Kodiak Island in Alaska.

From Library Journal:

Published to coincide with a Smithsonian exhibition of the same title, this includes 36 profusely illustrated articles by American and Soviet scholars. The articles treat various aspects of the native cultures of Alaska and northeastern Siberia, such as potlatch ceremonies, native artists of Alaska, the ethnology of the Aleuts, and the history of Russian America. While some of the articles are interesting and informative, and there is a wealth of material for the specialist, the volume does not add up to a coherent whole for the nonscholar. For academic libraries.
