It is a great advance on earlier critiques of Writing Culture (1986) that have emerged at intervals, a large number of them cited by the contributors. Its strength lies particularly in its transdisciplinary perspectives and the clarity of both critique and new representations. The prologue is a tour de force. . Joan Vincent, Professor Emerita, Barnard College/Columbia University Two decades after the publication of Clifford and Marcus volume Writing Culture, this collection provides a fresh and diverse reassessment of the debates that this pioneering volume unleashed.

At the same time, Beyond Writing Culture moves the debate on by embracing the more fundamental challenge as to how to conceptualise the intricate relationship between epistemology and representational practices rather than maintaining the original narrow focus on textual analysis.

It thus offers a thought-provoking tapestry of new ideas relevant for scholars not only concerned with the ethnographic Other, but with representation in general.Olaf Zenker is Assistant Professor in Social Anthropology at the University of Bern, Switzerland.
