Description: This thirtieth anniversary edition ofSound and Sentimentmakes Steven Feld's landmark, field-defining book available to a new generation of scholars and students. A sensory ethnography set in the rainforest of Papua New Guinea, among the Kaluli people of Bosavi,Sound and Sentimentintroduced the anthropology of sound, or the cultural study of sound. After it was first published in 1982, a second edition, incorporating additional field research and a new postscript, was released in 1990. The third edition includes all of the material from the first two editions, along with a substantial new introduction in which Feld discusses Bosavi's recent history and reflects on the challenges it poses for contemporary theory and representation.
