MEDIA REVIEWS

At a time when many voices rightly urge us to move toward a more holistic approach to medicine, healing and society itself, it is fascinating and valuable to read this thoughtful, eyewitness account of a culture which has always been holistic. This is a book not just for anthropologists or psychologists, but for a much wider readership. It is vivid and colorful. - Harvey Cox, Harvard Divinity School

A brilliant sociological analysis of how the form and function of ritual healing are shaped by the Kung social structure. - Commonweal

Anyone interested in the transpersonal dimensions of healing will quickly recognize the importance of this book. Richard Katz has produced a compelling narrative of his three-month stay among a nomadic tribe of the Kalahari desert. - Journal of Transpersonal Psychology
