Summary of Fusion of the Worlds: An Ethnography of Possession among the Songhay of Niger – 1st Edition
From publisher University of Chicago Press:
This ethnography is more like a film than a book, so well does Stoller evoke the color, sight, sounds, and movements of Songhay possession ceremonies.-Choice “Stoller brilliantly recreates the reality of spirit presence; hosts are what they mediate, and spirits become flesh and blood in the ‘fusion’ with human existence. . . . An excellent demonstration of the benefits of a new genre of ethnographic writing. It expands our understanding of the harsh world of Songhay mediums and sorcerers.”-Bruce Kapferer, American Ethnologist “A vivid story that will appeal to a wide audience. . . . The voices of individual Songhay are evident and forceful throughout the story. . . . Like a painter, [Stoller] is concerned with the rich surface of things, with depicting images, evoking sensations, and enriching perceptions. . . . He has succeeded admirably.” -Michael Lambek, American Anthropologist “Events (ceremonies and life histories) are evoked in cinematic style. . . . [This book is] approachable and absorbing-it is well written, uncluttered by jargon and elegantly structured.”-Richard Fardon, Times Higher Education Supplement “Compelling, insightful, rich in ethnographic detail, and worthy of becoming a classic in the scholarship on Africa.”-Aidan Southall, African Studies Review
