About This Item

(Johannesburg: Penguin, 2006) 0143025058. 198 x 129 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. xiii + (i) + 328. A little foxing to edges. Very good condition. "In exploring ghost stories as urban legends, Goldstuck makes a fascinating discovery: the ghostly beliefs of each culture in South Africa have had a profound impact on the supernatural beliefs of every other cultural group in the country over the past four centuries. The result is the story of the South African ghost: a unique and complex character that reflects a turbulent history and a harsh existence and sheds a fascinating light on the nature of supernatural experience throughout the world." .
