The historians and anthropologists who contribute to this volume examine the sense of time in a wide range of historical and present cultures, from the Maya of Yucatan to revolutionary Europe to the Iparakuyo Maasai. Their discussion of time differs from philosophical discus-sions in that the real-world standard to which it submits itself is always culturally plural.

Individual volumes are designed with specific audiences in mind, with potential for classroom use a primary consideration. Each book is expected to stand alone as an important measure of the current state of the topic it addresses.

Time is the subject of several rather different conversations. Some of them, such as that of the cosmologists and theoretical physicists, are nearly impenetrable to nonspecialists; others have an easy popular appeal. In this volume, editors Diane Owen Hughes and Thomas R. Trautmann collect nine essays on the related but distinct conversation about time that takes place at the intersection of history and ethnology.
