Spirit Possession and Spirit Mediumship in Africa and Afro-America : An Annotated Bibliography, Hardback Book

Spirit Possession and Spirit Mediumship in Africa and Afro-America : An Annotated Bibliography Hardback

Edited by Irving I. Zaretsky, Cynthia Shambaugh

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Spiritualism series

Description

Originally published in 1978 Spirit Possession and Spirit Mediumship in Africa and Afro-America is an incredibly diverse and comprehensive bibliography on published works containing ethnographic data on, and analysis of, spirit possession and spirit mediumship in North and Sub-Saharan Africa and in some Afro-American communities in the Western Hemisphere.

The sources on Western Afro-American communities were chosen to shed light on the African continent and the Americas.

The bibliography, while not exhaustive, provides extensive research on the area of research in spiritualism in Africa and Afro-America.

The bibliography also provides unique sources on spirit cults, ritual or ethnic groups and will be of especial interest to researchers.

Although published in the late 70s, this book will still provide an incredibly useful research tool for academics in the area of religion, with a focus on spiritualism and non-western religions.
