This is a book about empathy. It is a major achievement in terms of collaborative and research talents as well as being a brilliant and sensitive book design. In its focus and content, it vindicates the controversy garnered by Skotnes in her Miscast : negotiating the presence of the Bushmen, an installation and publication dating from 1996. This book focuses not so much on an interpretation of San beliefs or lifestyle, but rather on giving recognition to the research priorities of two very important and perhaps often overlooked figures.
