9780415273206: Beyond Primitivism: Indigenous Religious Traditions and Modernity

What role do indigenous religions play in today's world? Beyond Primitivism is a complete appraisal of indigenous religions - faiths integrally connected to the cultures in which they originate, as distinct from global religions of conversion - as practised across America, Africa, Asia and the Pacific today. At a time when local traditions across the world are colliding with global culture, it explores the future of indigenous faiths as they encounter modernity and globalization. Beyond Primitivism argues that indigenous religions are not irrelevant in modern society, but are dynamic, progressive forces of continuing vitality and influence. Including essays on Haitian vodou, Korean shamanism and the Sri Lankan 'Wild Man', the contributors reveal the relevance of native religions to millions of believers worldwide, challenging the perception that indigenous faiths are vanishing from the face of the globe.

'This volume confronts a most pressing issue in the study of religion. It should be received with acclaim and serve as a landmark text in the field.'
.
–Professor Terry Rey, Florida State University


'Includes contributors of world renown and influence ... an excellent text for classroom teaching and a valuable contribution to academic scholarship on modernity and social change.'
.
–Kamari M. Clarke, Yale University

Will fill an important niche...more comprehensive than any othe collection I am acquainted with. Breaks down the artificial boundaries evident in so much contemporary scholarship and illustrates the importance of extending dialogue for our common enrichment
