Author(s): Deborah Root

History & Theory

From nineteenth-century paintings of Arab marauders to our current fascination with New Age shamanism, Root explores and explodes the consumption of the Other as a source of violence, passion, and spirituality. This fascinating book raises important and uncomfortable questions about how we travel, what we buy, and how we determine cultural merit
