Book Review: The Voodoo Encyclopedia: Magic, Ritual, and Religion

Anita Slack

Abstract


The most striking feature of this volume is its focus on Voodoo or Vodou as a belief system, replete with all the trappings one expects: rituals, ethical considerations, practitioners, and a full history. The preface immediately recognizes the stereotypes and connotations that have become entrenched in the word itself, and promises information on the “full-fledged” religion of Vodou. This resource delivers on its promise.
