This book is a powerful examination of ritual-based performance traditions practised throughout the African diaspora. It belongs on the shelf of anyone studying black performance. By juxtaposing old and new articles, the editors provide perspectives on the subject that are at once global, historical, recuperative, revisionist and provocative.
