Book Description VAMzzz Publishing, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Sorcery Witchcraft in the Caribbean Voodoos and Obeahs: Phases of West India Witchcraft by the Jesuit anthropologist Joseph J. Williams (1875-1940) offers a careful documentation of the history and ethnography of Voodoo and reveals the connection of both Haitian Voodoo and Jamaican Obeah to snake worship (ophioletreia). In Jamaica, Obeah is the general term to denote those Africans who in the island practice witchcraft or sorcery. Williams includes numerous quotations from rare documents and books on the topic. This work goes into great depth concerning the New World-African connection and is highly recommended if you want a deep understanding of the dramatic historical background of Haitian and Jamaican magic and witchcraft, and the profound influence of imperialism, slavery and racism on its development. Williams is best known for his anthropological writings about African and Caribbean people, which include Whispering of the Caribbean, Whence the Black Irish of Jamaica?, Psychic Phenomena in Jamaica and Africa s God.

Book Description Dial Press, Inc., New York, 1933. Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. Brown binding with imprint of lion portrait on the front cover. This bool would be in fine shape were it not for a damp stain that runs almost the length of the book near the spine and then on the bottom of the front panel. Whatever the substance was, it bled onto the back panel to create about a 2" blemish. End papers are clean. Not ex-library. Corners are sharp, but the top two have a bit of rubbing.
