About this title


David Richards examines historical anthropological discourse--specifically writings about and depictions of "savage" peoples by conquering races--as a form of textual practice. Masks of Difference provides detailed readings of individual representations, both artistic and literary, of colonization, including Florida (1564-90) and Scotland (1814), together with extended surveys. What emerges is a composite picture of anthropological representation as a textual genre in its own right, embracing literature, literary theory and colonial/postcolonial studies.

Book Description:

Anthropological representation emerges as a textual genre from this examination of historical anthropological discourse--specifically writings about and depictions of "savage" peoples by conquering races. The text embraces literature, literary theory and colonial/postcolonial studies.

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
