4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, informative, 26 Mar. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Passage of Darkness: The Ethnobiology of the Haitian Zombie (Paperback)
While the information in the book can be gotten elsewhere these days, Davis' text holds together quite well, and without caving in to any commercial artiface. The term "ethnobiology" seems a little much, however -- I am not sure that any new theoretical ground has been surveyed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, but why no follow up, 23 Feb. 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Passage of Darkness: The Ethnobiology of the Haitian Zombie (Paperback)
This is an excellent well written and well researched book that gripped my like few non-fiction books ever have, yet, it leaves science minded people hanging. After all the research Davis conducted it makes no sense that he failed to follow up with experimentation using tetrodotoxin in a laboratory setting. It seems that he comes so close to finding a new use for this sodium blocking drug but fails to follow up. Maybe he has and I just haven't been able to find it despite extensive efforts. If you know of any follow-up please e-mail me.
