-Michael F. Brown, Williams College
"There are several characteristics that make this collection of essays an admirable endeavour: the breadth of questions and disciplines covered - music, arts, archaeology, genetics, religion, ethnobiology - in an interdisciplinary dialogue moderated by philosophers; the passionate engagement of the authors with the ethics of appropriation of subaltern cultures by dominant Western cultures; the incisiveness of the debates over each theme discussed (one author debating with another before giving his/her own point of view in the shape of an individual article); the soundness of theoretical arguments and the stunning and provocative examples debated." (Journal of the Royal Astronomical Institute, 2011) "To read these essays is to eavesdrop on a roomful of thinkerslocked in spirited debate about the meaning of culturalappropriation. What knits the chapters together is theauthors' shared desire to clarify what's at stake whenoutsiders copy, collect, or steal the biological and culturalresources of subaltern peoples."
-Julie C. Van Camp, California State University, LongBeach
"This breakthrough collection is a splendid demonstration of thebenefits of collaborative interdisciplinary research to producestrikingly original scholarship. We are the beneficiaries. Talentedteams of leading philosophers with outstanding specialists in awide range of disciplines examine the enormously complex ethicalchallenges of cultural appropriation. This is a model forscholarship in an increasingly complex era of intellectualglobalization."
