From the Publisher" ... the value of this book is at least two-fold.: It is at once a counterparadigm to traditional Afro-Americanist religious studies and a subtle but sharp critique of what Vassos Argyrou has called the “ethnological predicament” (2002: 2), that in having traditionally placed themselves as the arbitrors of ‘difference’, anthropologists have implicitly claimed for themselves an ahistorical observer’s perspective they clearly do not occupy, in either ideological or practical terms."
