Review of 'In an Antique Land' on Goodreads

5 stars

Well-woven and closely-told personal tales of field anthropology amidst 80s Egyptian Muslim peasants and archival anthropology tracing a 12th century Jewish merchant through the middle east, with constant thoughts on outsiders, progress, pre- and post-colonial experience, religion and family.
