Format: Paperback
Voodoo and Afro-caribbean Paganism is a thoughtfully organized, comprehensive overview of the African diaspora religions. It is organized by each major division and includes details about the Gods and Goddesses, myths and practices. If you want to know about the Yoruba Goddess Osun, there's a good summary here. If you want to know about the diasporic creation myths, look here. If you want some information on New Orleans Voodoo practices and rituals, it's in here too. Ms. Dorsey has always impressed me when I've had the chance to catch her classes, and here is distilled information on a encyclopedic array of subjects within her speciality. This is an excellent, easy to read, practical summary text including directed texts, films and recordings for further study.

What we have here is someone who understands implicitly the commonalities found across the faiths and systems. The Afro-Carribean religions arose from just that, and this work helps explain this most important point.
