KIRKUS REVIEW

Eleven articles and essays representing various ways of looking at primitive art ""from the sociological to the stylistic and from the inductive to the speculative"" include articles from out-of-print journals or limited editions, translations, and three specially written for the present book. They cover Africa, Southeast Asia, Oceania and America, include contributions from Franz Boas, Raymond Firth, Douglas Fraser, Peter Buck, Felix Speiser, Robert Heine-Geldern, Julius Gluck, Paul Bohannan, Roy Sieber, Deborah Waite. They range in concentration from a study of ""Representative Art of Primitive People"" by Boas to one of ""Kwakiutl Transformation Masks"" by Waite.
