Novel expanded from the novella ''Death and Designation Among the Asadi,'' a Nebula Award finalist. Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 4-53.

''complex and sometimes moving analyses of alien cultures: the finest of these anthropology-based interrogatory tales is TRANSFIGURATIONS (1973 Worlds of If as ''Death and Designation among the Asadi''; fixup 1979), where the colonizing impact of a ''superior'' culture upon less technologically advanced natives is complexly contrasted -- in a story which owes much to Joseph Conrad - with the recursive unknowableness of the Other'' (John Clute/Encycledia of SF).
