Subject: Several SACC matters
Please put this on the SACC list. (Thanks, Lloyd)
Dear SACC folks:
I was impressed with all the quick offers I received to review the Garifuna
Journey video. Among the respondents was a couple that has spend many years
doing fieldwork among the Garifuna, so I have offered them the video for
However, I have several books that are ideal for TASN reviews. Some of you
may remember Art Niehoff-I reviewed his On Becoming Human in an earlier TASN
issue. Art is a retired anthropologist who created his own publishing
company (The Hominid Press) and has been coming out with something like a
book a year for the past three years. So, in addition to the above, we have
Takeover: How Euroman Changed the World. l996. Written as a futuristic
science fiction novel, it explores how European expansionists changed the
way of life of people everywhere.
On Being a Conceptual Animal. 1998. (From the back cover): " . . a
captivating account of how one anthropologist went from concept to concept
through a lifetime, and how the perceived world changed as a consequence .
An Anthropologist Under the Bed. 1999. (From the back cover): "Author
Niehoff [the Grandpa Moses of Sex] . . gives you stories of sexual behavior
as it really happens-from a cockroach and chimp to foreign and American
husbands, wives, and lovers, and finally to a detailed fictional account of
Grandpa Moses himself."
The main subject of all three, of course, is anthropology, but each has a

public. I think whoever reviews them will enjoy the experience, however
they may evaluate the work. Please let me know which you want and give me
your mailing address.
Now another matter. Does anyone have any photos from Boston that would be
appropriate for our Sept. AN column? If so, please send me a print by July
16, as the column is due shortly after that date. Also, please send
contributions for the column.
