"Nils Bubandt has hit upon an ingenious idea...The brilliance of this book stems from Bubandt’s realisation that studying these interconnections can transform our understandings of both politics and spirits. He has set an important agenda for future studies of Indonesian politics."
Nicholas Long, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
Inside Indonesia 121: Jul-Sep 2015
'This is a truly inspiring book, providing a fresh take on Indonesian politics and the anthropology of politics and religion. The text weaves together the spirit world with politics, corruption and the execution of law, without treating spirits as an epi-phenomenon of the latter but as a formative power.'
JÖRGEN HELLMAN, Gothenburg University, The Asia Pacific Journal of Anthropology
