Travels with Tooy : history, memory, and the African American imagination by Richard Price( )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and French and held by 1,712 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thirty-five years into his research among the descendants of rebel slaves living in the South American rain forest, anthropologist Richard Price encountered Tooy, a priest, philosopher, and healer living in a rough shantytown on the outskirts of Cayenne, French Guiana. Tooy is a time traveler who crosses boundaries between centuries, continents, the worlds of the living and the dead, and the visible and invisible. With an innovative blend of storytelling and scholarship, Travels with Tooy recounts the mutually enlightening and mind-expanding journeys of these two intellectuals

The convict and the colonel by Richard Price( Book )

31 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The life of Medard Aribot - Martiniquan artist, convict, madman, legend - spans much of the twentieth century. Born in 1901 when slavery was a living memory, Medard was banished to the Devil's Island penal colony because, people say, he carved the "impertinent" bust of a colonel hoisted overhead by rioters during a 1925 election-day protest that ended in massacre. Today, the miniature gingerbread-style house he built on his return to Martinique has become a popular tourist attraction." "Richard Price draws on long-term ethnography, archival documents, newspapers, old love letters, cinema, street-theater, and Caribbean fiction and poetry to explore how one generation's powerful historical metaphors could so quickly become the next generation's trivial pursuit. Using the election-day massacre and the life of Aribot as emblems of Martinique's transition from colonialism to modernity, Price shows how the fishing village he encountered on his first trip to Martinique in 1962 has been transformed by a heavily assisted welfare-based consumer economy. And how Medard's art and life, once a subversive symbol of anticolonial sentiment, has been silenced by the contemporary rush to modernity ... or has it?"--Jacket

Equatoria by Richard Price( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A postmodern romp through the rain forest, Equatoria is both travelogue and cultural critique. On the right-hand pages the Prices chronicle their 1990 artifact-collecting expedition up the rivers of French Guiana, and on the left, stage an accompanying sideshow that enlists the help of Jonathan Swift, Joseph Conrad, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Alex Haley, James Clifford, Eric Hobsbawm, Germaine Greer, and even the noted anthropologist James Goodfellow (who asks for more sex). Also included are quotes from the nurses, doctors, tourists, convicts and countless others who live in this French penal colony turned space center in tropical South America."--BOOK JACKET. "Charged with acquiring objects for a new museum, the Prices kept a log of their day-to-day adventures and misadventures, constantly confronting their ambivalence about the act of collecting, the very possibility of exhibiting cultures, and the future of anthropology. By the time their expedition arrived in the villages of the Aluku Maroons, these African-American descendants of rebel slaves had become as comfortable in blue jeans and frilly mail-order dresses flown in from Paris as in breechcloths and trade cotton wrapskirts. What would they think of exporting material chunks of their artistic heritage to a glossy modern building in a suburb of Cayenne?"--BOOK JACKET. "Probing the nature of museums, collecting, and power relations between "us" and "them," the authors raise many troubling questions. Anyone concerned about cultural preservation, museums, "primitive" art, anthropology, indigenous rights, and the legacies of colonialism will be challenged by this playful, but eminently serious work."--Jacket
Two evenings in Saramaka by Richard Price( Book )

6 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in the more general context of tale telling by the descendants of Africans throughout the Americas and of recent scholarship in performance studies, these Saramaka tales are presented as a dramatic script. With the help of nearly forty photographs, readers become familiar not only with the characters in folktale-land, but also with the men and women who so imaginatively bring them to life. And because music complements narration in Saramaka just as it does elsewhere in Afro-America, more than fifty songs are presented here in musical notation
Stedman's Surinam : life in an eighteenth-century slave society by John Gabriel Stedman( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This abridgment of the Prices' acclaimed 1988 critical edition is based on Stedman's original, handwritten manuscript, which offers a portrait at considerable variance with the 1796 classic. The unexpurgated text, presented here with extensive notes and commentary, constitutes one of the richest and most evocative accounts ever written of colonial life--and one of the strongest indictments ever to appear against New World slavery
Enigma variations by Richard Price( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a steamy colonial city, an eccentric Frenchman offers for sale an extraordinary collection of primitive art. The two anthropologists called in to appraise the pieces for the national museum quickly find themselves in a murky world where the boundaries of authenticity and deception blur in the tropical heat. What begins as an intellectual puzzle threatens to turn into a deadly confrontation
The root of roots, or, How Afro-American anthropology got its start by Richard Price( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this pamphlet anthropological iconoclasts Richard and Sally Price crack the yellowing diaries of Melville and Frances Herskovits on their famous 1920s expedition deep into the South American jungle, exposing-with their trademark combination of deadpan wit and theoretical rigor-the origins of the field that has come to be known as African diaspora studies. (Taken from the back cover of book.)
