About the Author

ALFRED METRAUX was a Swiss anthropologist, ethnologist and human rights leader. A dedicated humanitarian, he brought the brilliance of South American Indian cultures to light, solved the mysteries of Easter Island, taught the world about voodoo, and defined the United Nations' stand against racism. Winner of the Guggenheim Fellowship for Natural Sciences, his books include Voodoo in Haiti, The History of the Incas and Easter Island. At the time of his death, he was Professor of South American Anthropology at the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes, Paris.

Reviews

"Metraux's book is a landmark in the serious study of Afro-Atlantic religion. The breadth and subtlety of its approach is such that it remains an essential classic of Afro-American ethnology." --Robert Farris Thompson, professor of art history, Yale University, author of Flash of the Spirit

"This is a work deserving of wide-readership, and assured of it by its understanding and appeal." --Library Journal "This book gives what is surely the most authoritative general account of that complex of belief and practice called vaudoo available in literature. . . . No other observer of vaudoo has contributed to its study the exquisite documentation of detail that marks the work of Alfred Metraux." --Sidney W. Mintz, professor of anthropology, Johns Hopkins University
