Sample text (50 to 200 words): Although the ethnologists viewed their science as above the cultural values of the Other they exhibited and better than then popular consumerism of the Other through commercial spectacles like the Völkerschauen (despite their frequent involvement), they nonetheless were part of a scientific culture that was also obsessed over the Other through material objects. The collecting frenzy of the ethnologists was in itself part of a massive commercial consumerism network through their business practices with dealers and questionable collecting ethics. This seeming obsession that the European ethnologist had with collecting objects was not lost on the local cultures producing the material. Local cultures could be quick to manufacture goods strictly for consumption by the European making ethnologists wary of ‘tourist’ goods
