Jane This book was dry, but really great--instead of just mucking around in theory, Adare arranged viewings and used a non-leading questionnaire, extrapolating from actual responses instead of projecting how "they" must feel. Really fascinating.

Allison It sounds as if it might read similarly to another book that is actually languishing on my bookshelf right now: Killing the White Man's Indian Reinventing Native Americans at the End of the Twentieth Century.

Jane Oh, that sounds really fascinating too!

Allison I read a chapter of it a few summers ago and it was really good! I don't remember why I dropped reading it, but I do remember it being slightly dense stylistically. I might pick it up again soon to read in conjunction with this one (if I can find it soon!), so I'll try to pin-point the why of that memory for max helpfulness.
