About the book:

What is so "primitive" about primitive art? And how do we dare to use our standards to judge it? Drawing on an intriguing mixture of sources--including fashion ads and films, her own anthropological research and even comic strips like Doonesbury--Price explores the cultural arrogance implicit in Westerners' appropriation of non-Western art. "A witty, but scholarly, indictment of the whole primitive art business."--Peter Plagens, Newsweek "Prices unfolds a fascinating history of the many 20th-century expeditions in search of exotic culture."--Michael W. Perri, Utne Reader
