Description - Cannibal Tours and Glass Boxes by Michael M. Ames
This collection of essays poses a number of probing questions about the role and responsibility of museums and anthropology in the contemporary world. Ames, an internationally renowned museum director, challenges popular concepts and criticisms of museums, and presents an alternate perspective which reflects his experiences from many years of museum work. These essays offer an accessible, often anecdotal, journey through one professional anthropologist's concerns about, and hopes for, the discipline and its future.
