About This Item

U.S.A.: Princeton University Press (Bollingen Series LXXVI), 1974 Bibliography, Index. « Second printing thus in the Princeton Bollingen paperback series, originally published in French (1951); this edition revised and enlarged. An authoritative study of Shamanism as a religion, providing a clear definition of techniques, mythologies and ideology. Shamanism soon became the standard work in the study of this mysterious and fascinating phenomenon. Writing as the founder of the modern study of the history of religion, Romanian émigré--scholar Mircea Eliade (1907-1986) surveys the practice of Shamanism over two and a half millennia of human history, moving from the Shamanic traditions of Siberia and Central Asia--where Shamanism was first observed--to North and South America, Indonesia, Tibet, China, and beyond. In this authoritative survey, Eliade illuminates the magico-religious life of societies that give primacy of place to the figure of the Shaman--at once magician and medicine man, healer and miracle-doer, priest, mystic, and poet. Synthesizing the approaches of psychology, sociology, and ethnology, Shamanism will remain for years to come the reference book of choice for those intrigued by this practice.»
