A unique documentation of mankind,
By A Customer
This review is from: African Ceremonies (Hardcover)
Having travelled through and worked in about 15 African countries over the last 2 decades, I can honestly say this is the best ever documentation of the tremendous diversity and richness of the African culture that is very very meaningful but neglected and at stake. The German edition has just been launched. It is a "heavy" doc and a masterpiece of historical value. A documentation that I will consult once and again. It takes the reader into a world of feelings and social concepts that are typically African in their appearance but reflect basic concepts of human relations.
