Editorial Reviews


In all, this is an exciting study on a consolidated historiographic and anthropological theme such as Afro-Brazilian culture, since it does not take for granted the established truths, or the political practices and though, that both history and anthropology have set out to support in twentieth-century Brazil. --Canadian Journal of History/Annales canadiennes d'histoire

… the impressive research and sensitive analyses - make this book an important and original contribution to the cultural history of the region. Anthropologists and historians interested in the development of Candomble - and in the processes of objectification and appropriation of everyday practices and things as symbols of collective identity, will certainly find much of interest in Sansi's work. --Journal of Latin American Studies

This book - brings a new level of analytical rigor to the artistic study of African-American religious objects - Sansi's economical prose allows him to make complex theoretical, historical, ethnographic, and aesthetic arguments succinctly. Its clarity and brevity makes it attractive for course adoption especially in African-Diaspora studies, museum studies and 'non-western' art history courses --The Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology
