about this book

By one of the most distinguished anthropologists of the twentieth century, Voodoo in Haiti is a masterwork of observation and description of the lives and rituals of the Haitian mambos and adepts, and of the history and origins of their religion. It is an accurate and engaging account of one of the most fascinating and misunderstood cultures of the world.


"This book gives what is surely the most authoritative general account of that complex of belief and practice called vaudou available...No other observer of vaudou has contributed to its study the exquisite documentation of detail that marks the work of Alfred Metraux."--Sidney W. Mintz, Johns Hopkins University
