Abstract

Book Reviews view of the "European fascination with the collecting of Americans" from Cabot to NAGPRA, a fascination that he optimistically hopes "might be coming to a close after 500 years" (p. 213). Mancall's essay speaks to the book's appeal to those involved in contemporary debates over museums, collecting, and repatriation of indigenous artifacts. The essay that follows his will hold similar fascination to those interested in contemporary museum issues, as in this piece Paz Cabello Caro looks at late eighteenth-century collections of Spanish Americana, seeking to match contemporary museum collections with original inventories despite the ravages of time and natural and manmade disasters. Collecting across Cultures came out of a series of workshops and conferences, which might explain how well the essays converse with one another (so much so that at times they even reference each other, something that it is all too often lacking in essay collections). The book's interdisciplinarity makes it unsurprising that it speaks to a wide range of scholars beyond the material culture scholars, art historians, and historians of science and the early modern Atlantic world targeted in its title. It is also relevant to historians of religion, empire, the Enlightenment, Latin America,
