About this product
- Description'The Bushman' is a perennial but changing image. The transformation of that image is important. It symbolizes the perception of Bushman or San society, of the ideas and values of ethgraphers who have worked with Bushman peoples, and those of other anthropologists who use this work. Anthropology and the Bushman covers early travellers and settlers, classic nineteenth and twentieth-century ethgraphers, North American and Japanese ecological traditions, the approaches of African ethgraphers, and recent work on advocacy and social development. It reveals the impact of Bushman studies on anthropology and on the public.The book highlights how Bushman or San ethgraphy has contributed to anthropological controversy, for example in the debates on the degree of incorporation of San society within the wider political ecomy, and on the validity of the case for 'indigeus rights' as a special kind of human rights. Examining the changing image of the Bushman, Barnard provides a new contribution to an established anthropology debate.
