Santeria from Africa to the New World: The Dead Sell Memoriesby George Brandon
This book takes readers along one path of what this transatlantic tradition of Yoruba religion has come to be---the path from Africa to Cuba to New York City. Other paths could have been, and ultimately must be, chosen and researched by scholars in the future. So this book talks about one line, one path among the many, and its focus is mainly on the structures and rhythms of Santeria's history and on problems of collective memory and syncretism.
