Reviews

'Ingold's eventual incorporation of anthropological examples from eastern Peru is really where we begin to see a master at work - Ingold intimately understands the data and interpretation flows in an engaging way ... this is a vibrant read - at times when reading I shouted aloud, 'Yes spot on!' at other times I paced the room and exclaimed in frustration 'No!'. That Ingold's writing can produce such dramatic effects is a testament to the quality of his argument. Do I recommend reading this book? Definitely.'
Cambridge Archaeological Journal

'The author's ambition, to take a virgin piece of interdisciplinary territory and "write on it a bit", has been fascinatingly achieved.'
Steven Poole, The Guardian

"As alluded to in the quote on the book's cover, it is difficult to see the world the same way after reading this book. And that may be the larger meaning to take away: as Ingold (Univ. of Aberdeen) shows, earlier conceptions of speech and writing were intimately interconnected with movement, and as wayfarers journey through the world, neither they nor the book's reader are the same as when they started... Highly recommended."
M. Ebert, CHOICE, April 2008 Vol. 45
