This book should probably be rated between 3-Stars and 4-Stars : It has some good things going for it, such as rarely published African tribal objects, good photography and nice presentation....but....it also has some drawbacks, such as too many ordinary items, ponderous text, and way-too-brief object descriptions. The problem with the text may result from translation issues, but frankly, I think that it is probably too pretentious in both English and Italian. The book features a few flags, but most of the objects are masks and figures. In the final analysis, if you can purchase this book for about half of it's listed $60 (35 Euro) price, (as is the case in late 2012), then it's probably worth your attention for the photos of rarely-seen tribal art alone.
