Records the results of the author's 11-year study of Gorovodo, the voodoo practised by West Africa's Ewe populations of coastal Ghana, Togo and Benin. The work represents an ethnography of spirit possession that focuses on law and morality in ""medicine voodoo"" orders.

MEDIA REVIEWS

I was enthralled by this book and that, I believe, is not something that often happens to a reader of ethnography. There is a marvelous simplicity and honesty in this very sophisticated text that could only have come from prolonged fieldwork and the loving care of the people among whom Rosenthal dwelt-not to mention the magic of the spirits themselves.

--Michael Taussig, Columbia University
