Editorial Reviews


"For the serious scholar, the folklore handbook, Hoodoo, Voodoo, and Conjure, provides material for future research into African American culture. In survey courses on African American culture, this book would be one that would go a long way in any analysis of the psychological significance of spirituality, past, present, and future, and its place within the various arms of the Diaspora."


Journal of Folklore Research

"The author of this well-put-together book knows that the occult practices imported from Africa to the New World, especially the Caribbean and, although widespread in its influence, has not been well documented in the academic world. Therefore, Professor Anderson has collated what does exist, written informative essays to cover broad general areas, explained what is and is not clear or available in the current literature, and given extensive bibliographies for researchers and interested students to follow up on and do larger studies in the future."



". . .the strength of this book lies in the wealth of historical specifics that are provided. . . this book is valuable because it is important that anyone in the field of religion have some knowledge of these old and influential practices."


Catholic Library World

"This is a good reference book for learning about the practice of these three nontraditional healing, helping, and harming techniques. . . . The work provides an in-depth look at the practices. It can serve as somewhat of a how-to guide for anyone interested in becoming involved with them. . . . The book serves as a teaching tool that explains which herbs or portions to use for various needs. . . . The volume is recommended for religious or medical collections focusing on nontraditional spiritual practices. Its accessible style makes it a good source for interested general adult readers as well."


MultiCultural Review

"… a wonderful resource guide and historical survey of 'Voodooism' and African American alternative spirituality. … Anderson does an outstanding job of informing his readers about Voodooism … very informative and an excellent resource for amateurs and experts seeking an understanding of Voodooism and African American supernaturalisms."


Journal of African American History

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book arrived quickly and in excellent condition. It's quite pricey new but I had to have it. Other than it being a library book (which was in the description) it's practically perfect in every way:)
