First Sentence
In company with many others called foragers in faraway corners of the earth, the San-speaking peoples of southern Africa have been relegated to an existential remoteness in time and space and being (fig. 1.1). Read the first page

anthropology majors and curious world citizens 18 April 2004
By Bryan Menne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
this book is thought provoking in that it challenges us to question notions of reality disseminated to us by experts and media organizations. What guides analytical perceptions about the world and the people in it, is a topic that is attempted-I believe successfully- in Edwin Wilmsen's Book: Land Filled With Flies. History is crucial in the development and presentation of realities of existences and Wilmsen uncovers these factors of construction. The identity, under "construction" is the "Bushmen" of the Kalahari. If you like to dismantle structures of power and strip bare pre-conceived notions of perception, then you will like this book. I got all this just from reading the first and last chapter. Even the intro was sizzling. If you like biting remarks and criticisms, he pleases by exposing his anthropological colleagues as accomplices in the shaping of a destructive categorization of a disadvantaged people, the "fictitious Bushmen"
