Review - Chris Healey review of "Nage Birds" by Greg Forth
- View SourceDear all,
Chris, and the editors of the Journal of Ethnobiology, have kindly
agreed o make a copy of Chris's review of Greg Forth's book "Nage
Birds" published in 2004 by Routledge.
I am currently reading Greg's book and agree with Chris's view that it
represents a long-overdue approach to ethnoornithology, that is, a
monograph that focuses on the knowledge of a specific group for its
own value and not as a comparative analysis of how that knowledge
'matches'- or does not - contemporary scientific thought.
I've posted the review on the ERSG net - see under "Files".
I'll have a report and some abstracts from the recent Society of
Ethnobiology conference posted in the next few days.
Cheers and best,
