9780198280682: Shamans and Elders: Experience, Knowledge, and Power among the Daur Mongols (Oxford Studies in Social and Cultural Anthropology)

This work is a ground breaking study of Mongolian shamanism and society, past and present. Lavishly illustrated and containing a wealth of new information, it presents a fresh understanding of the widespread phenomenon of shamanism. It looks at gender and ritual, female shamans and goddess worship, death and funeral rituals, the importance of old men and ancestors, and Daur notions of landscape within their direct experience and beyond.
