About this book

Hasinoff brings the untold history of the World in Boston of 1911, 'America's First Great Missionary Exposition,' to light, focusing on how the material culture of missions shaped domestic interactions with evangelism, Christianity, and the consumption of ethnological knowledge.

Reviews

'Thorough, balanced, theoretically informed, and gracefully written. The strength of the study is the wonderful way in which the author takes complex anthropological issues and lucidly demonstrates their relevance for the understanding of this important exhibition. The book will expand a very small literature, making an enormous and thoroughly original contribution.' - David Morgan, Professor of Religion, Duke University, USA
