Abstract

Review of Rainer F. Buschman's "Anthropology’s Global Histories. The Ethnographic..."

Despite its title, the core period this volume investigates is from the beginning of the Voelkerkunde Museum in Berlin in 1886 to the end of the German colonial empire in 1921. Based on a PhD dissertation, this is a diligently researched volume. Many of the archival collections consulted in Germany were seriously damaged during World War II and it takes a tenacious and meticulous researcher to excavate the stories and developments that form the core of this study. The publishers allowed detailed footnotes, the bibliography is extensive and the short index is solid.
