Organized by geographic area in Africa, Oceania, and the Americas, the book provides an overview of each culture and its history, maps of tribal areas, lists of key tribes, and profiles of art-producing countries. Each chapter shows many items, such as masks, figures, fertility dolls, drums, and bowls from auction houses (referenced at the end of the book), with descriptions and prices. There is no bibliography. Miller contributes to many magazines and has written many books on antiques and interiors.
