Miscast: Negotiating the Presence of the Bushmen
Pippa Skotnes, South African National Gallery
University of Cape Town Press, 1996 - History - 381 pages
In this book, eminent scholars explore the term 'Bushmen' and the relationships that gave rise to it, from the perspectives of anthropology, archaeology, comparative religion, literary studies, art history and musicology. Topics as diverse as trophy heads and museums, to the destruction of the Cape San, and appraisals of 19th-century photographic practices are examined.
