The blender of culture does not always produce a smoothie. May 5 2014
By Tutor Judith - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is lush with evidence for a phenomenon we have known since Homo sapiens migrated out of the Olduvai Gorge patch of the African continent about 200,000 years ago. Humans move. Everything moves, and affects everything else. Geological movements of the tectonic plates that relocated Gondwanaland and produced Pangaea and now our present arrangement of lands and seas, permitted movement of flora and fauna, and they're all still moving. This collection of essays, beautifully researched and eloquently written, makes the case, as only academics do, with singular focused examples of human cultures moving and cross-pollinating with local cultures to produce something more butterscotch than plain vanilla or chocolate. It's a bit self-indulgent as a book, I think, where each author takes to the podium to tell us about his and her particular experience of culture interface. Some cultures just don't get other cultures. Some do but don't like them. Some do. Huh!
