520    Headhunting and Colonialism is an account of colonial 
       violence, indigenous headhunting and the circulation of 
       human skulls to anthropological museums in the heyday of 
       late European imperialism.Using the example of the 
       Portuguese colony of East Timor, it embeds the history of 
       a museum collection of human skulls within the larger 
       context of the Portuguese imperial expansion, emergence of
       scientific anthropology in Europe, Christian beliefs about
       the dead body, and indigenous cultures. The book examines 
       how human skulls were critical to imperial power and 
       indigenous communities, and traceshow they could be 
       collected, exchanged, circulated, studied, and interpreted
       in colonial, scientific, and metropolitan contexts. By 
       combining imperial history with historical anthropology 
       and the history of science, it brings out a fresh 
       reappraisal of colonial interactions as mutually parasitic,
       and a novel framework for understanding the social life of
       collections as attachments between thingsand histories 
520    "Explores headhunting in the colonial wars and the 
       collection of heads for European museums, 1870s-1930s. By 
       looking at Portuguese colonialism in East Timor, it shows 
       how indigenous peoples andcolonial powers interacted in a 
       mutually dependent way, and how collected remains became 
       objects ofpolitical, symbolic, and scientific 
       significance"--Provided by publisher
