MEDIA REVIEWS

"Balzer, one of the first western-trained scholars to undertake ethnographic fieldwork in Siberia, is uniquely positioned to write this book. Here she argues that far from fading away, shamanism is being revitalized in Central and Far Eastern Russia following the dissolution of the former Soviet Union. One of the many strengths of this volume is the elegant way she positions her analysis in both Russian and Euro-American anthropological theories." - Julie Cruikshank, Professor Emerita of Anthropology, University of British Columbia"A remarkably sensitive collection of essays spanning three decades of research. The breadth and depth of shamanic practice from across the north Asian landscape comes into vivid focus." - Bruce Grant, Associate Professor of Anthropology, New York University
