Person as a subject


This biography of E. Saphir clearly reflects the author's interests as a disciplinary historian. The book considers Sapir's whole lifetime and describes the institutions he worked in, the committees he served on and the people he worked with and portrays his private life quite minutely, in contrast to his fieldwork and the genesis of his theoretical work.
