After a decade of historical anthropology, the discipline seems to be thoroughly historicized. This implies not only that the historical dimension of other cultures has become an integrated part of any anthropological inquiry, but also that the different ways of producing history have become important considerations. Using historical and ethnographic material, mainly from Europe, Other Histories examines the nature of history and its importance to anthropological study. The apparently Eurocentric perspective of this volume actually serves the purpose of dismantling the (previously claimed) unity and progress of European history. It demonstrates that history is not linear but highly complex, and often contains several separate local histories.
