Ten detailed case histories of spirit possession, written by anthropologists, and ranging in approach from psychoanalytic to social anthropological.

Minor bruising to spine ends, page-edges a little discolored, otherwise a clean VG+ copy in VG dust jacket (dust jacket darkened at edges and spine, edges lightly chafed, several nicks to edges).
