About the Book
Contributors to this volume trace the life history of artifacts that were brought to Europe and America from the Congo toward the end of the 19th century—and that became the subjects of museum displays. They also discuss the complex and sensitive issues involved in the business of "collecting", and consider how these objects were used in the invention of Africa by the West. 29 photos.
