In her latest book Galina Krasskova provides a thought-provoking, eye-opening and balanced presentation of the history of the Heathen revival in America and its attendant conflicts over where to draw the boundaries concerning belief, practice and identity. Though this restoration has only been going on for a few generations there is tremendous tension within the community concerning areas such as gender, race, normative social presentation, sexuality and questions of religious authority. All of these are explored with a special emphasis placed on how the community treats those who don't quite fit in or are called to intentionally transgressive roles. Originally submitted as her Master's thesis in Religious Studies in 2009, this examination of some of the more significant fault lines within contemporary American Heathenry is being published for the first time by Sanngetall Press.
