9780871402097: Primitive Religion (Complete and Unabridged)

From the jungle fastnesses of Africa and New Guinea, the plains of North America, and the palm groves of the South Sea Islands, Dr. Lowrie has wrenched the innermost secrets of primitive faith, revealing the psychological elements common to the beliefs of the aborigines.

Dr. Lowrie first describes the beliefs, codes, and practices of a variety of primitive religions. He then gives a critical survey of their beliefs including their psychological and historical aspects. He presents a wealth of strange and fascinating information--details like the self-mutilation of devotees, extraordinary human sacrifices perpetrated out of fear of sorcery, and naive superstitions.

Here is a scientific masterpiece for both layman and student, complete and unabridged--sanctioned by frequent quotation in anthropological handbooks and anthologies.
