Alan Barnard is Professor of the Anthropology of Southern Africa at the University of Edinburgh.


'Alan Barnard's fascinating examination of the changing images anthropology has held about the Bushmen of Southern Africa is an important contribution to the history of anthropology and offers rare insight into the lives, struggles and achievements of several generations of ethnographers. An important reading for any course on hunter-gatherers, southern Africa or the history of anthropology.'Jerome Lewis, London School of Economics
