This volume accompanies an exhibition of the same name that was organized by Seligman (director, Cantor Center for Visual Arts, Stanford U.) and Loughran (an independent scholar specializing in the Tuareg) and displayed Tuareg decorative and decorated artifacts jointly drawn from the collections of both their institutions, in addition to other major museums. Color photographs depict jewelry, clothing, religious artifacts, musical instruments, and other types of materials displayed in the exhibition, as well as various aspects of Tuareg life and culture. Interspersed with the photographs are textual essays discussing Tuareg culture and material culture from the perspectives of anthropology, ethnomusicology, political science, art history, and jewelry design.
