About the Author

Eric Gable teaches anthropology at the University of Mary Washington. He is author (with Richard Handler) of The New History in an Old Museum: Creating the Past at Colonial Williamsburg.


"Among the most eloquent and deeply reflexive, confessional [works] I have read in some time... [A]ccessible, conversational, and at times disarmingly colloquial, [it is] precisely the kind of work that should be taught at the undergraduate level." Liam Murphy, co-author of A History of Anthropological Theory "A major work of scholarship ... [with] the potential to become a classic work of anthropology that will be read and debated for years to come." Paul Stoller, author of The Power of the Between: An Anthropological Odyssey
