1 - 2 weeks availability
This book explores the ways in which past cultures have been used to shape colonial and postcolonial cultural identities. It provides a theoretical framework to understand these processes, and offers illustrative case studies in which the agency of ancient peoples, rather than the desires of antiquarians and archaeologists, is brought to the fore.
Daniel Michon is Assistant Professor, Religious Studies, Claremont McKenna College, USA.
