The serious student of religion would do far better to consult M. Reza Hamzeh'ee's work, "The Yaresan," Philip G. Kreyenbroek's excellent book, "Yezidism" (and his other fine publications on the Kurds in general and the Yezidis in particular), and Lady E.S. Drower's superb studies of the Mandaeans.
To explore the hidden worlds of the submerged religious traditions of the Ahl-e Haqq, the Mandaeans & the Yezidis is surely no easy task, considering the scarcity of the sources, let alone the silence of their custodians, the clergymen, on a broad range of their religions' beliefs, traditions and rituals. One is therefore grateful to Muhammed Aldami for this significant contribution to this field which swings between religion proper and anthropology. No less significant are the author's important observations concerning the behavioral patterns of the religious minorities that embrace such residual, syncretistic spiritual systems of `the gorgeous East'.
