Summary

Russian ethnographer Vladimir Kabo's passion for more than 30 years has been the study of Australia's Indigenous people. Continually denied permission to travel abroad, he finally arrived in Australia in 1990 to start a new life. This memoir records his life and work against the background of Soviet political and academic life since the revolution.

An afterword by one of his Australian colleagues, anthropologist Rhys Jones, provides an appreciation of Kabo's scholarship.
