About this title:

Synopsis: Sorcery and witchcraft are living ideas of great importance in many Melanesian societies today. In the field of law, health and education, to ignore beliefs in sorcery and witchcraft is to ignore an important dimension of any problem. This book is of both current and practical use and interest, and as a highly original contribution to anthropological knowledge seeks to emancipate Papua New Guinea studies from the domination hitherto exercised by theories drawn from Africa. It will appeal to anthropologists, as well as those interested in magic, shamanism, comparative religion, and the inherent fascination of New Guinea. "Dr Michele Stephen is Senior Lecturer in History at La Trobe University, Melbourne.". This book is intended for students and researchers in anthropology and the soiciology of religion.
