About this Item

Fine in Fine Pictorial Dust Jacket. Obeyesekere, a Professor of Anthropology at Princeton, debunks one of the most enduring myths of imperialism, civilization, and conquest: the notion that the Western civilizer is a god to savages. Using shipboard journals and logs kept by Captain James Cook and his officers, Obeyesekere reveals the Captain as both the self-conscious civilizer and the person who, his mission gone awry, becomes a savage himself. Appendices, Notes, Bibliography, Index. Navy blue cloth with gilt and bright green titling on spine. Dust Jacket shows sunning to spine. Interior is clean, crisp, tight & bright, unmarked. xvii, 251 pp. Approx. 6.5" x 9.5". A very nice copy. Carefully shipped in secure parcel. Ask all questions; glad to respond.
