The Empty Seashell: Witchcraft and Doubt on an Indonesian Island

By Nils Bubandt

Singapore: NUS Press, 2015. Paperback. New. Witchcraft has always been confusing and frustrating for serious anthropologists. Like the empty nautilus shells that wash up on the beach of Buli village in the Indonesian province of North Maluku, it appears to be of substance, but then appears to be empty of meaning. The author decides to take people's experiences seriously and comes to outline a new way of thinking about witchcraft as it relates to our lives today. 293 pages.
