"A witty study of those artfully fabricated objects that inhabit our museums—how people talk about them and how people talk with them. It is graceful, careful, profound, original, and sophisticated not only as cultural analysis but also as political history."—Hildred Geertz, Princeton University

"Errington's provocative book on the historic construction of "Primitive Art" is a "must read" for the growing numbers of scholars investigating issues of artistic authenticity, legitimacy, models of progress, and the market."—Suzanne Preston Blier, author of African Vodun: Art, Psychology, and Power
