Editorial Reviews

Review

'... the ideas in each chapter are clearly explained, with reference to previous scholarship in relevant areas, so that the book could easily stand in its own right as an introduction to Samuel's thought and, therefore, may be useful to undergraduate and postgraduate students.' Religions of South Asia

About the Author

Geoffrey Samuel is Professor of Anthropology at the University of Newcastle, NSW. After training in physics at Oxford, he undertook a PhD in social anthropology at Cambridge, carrying out field research on religion and society with Tibetans in Nepal and India in 1971-72. Subsequent fieldwork has included several further research trips to India, Nepal and Tibet, and shorter visits to other Asian societies. He joined the University of Newcastle in 1978 after teaching in the UK, New Zealand and Queensland. From 1995 to 1997, he was Professor of Religious Studies at Lancaster University, where he remains an Honorary Professor. He returned to Australia in 1998. His publications include two books, Mind, Body and Culture: Anthropology and the Biological Interface (1990) and Civilized Shamans: Buddhism in Tibetan Societies (1993). He edited Tantra and Popular Religion in Tibet (1994, with Hamish Gregor and Elisabeth Stutchbury), Nature Religion Today (1998, with Joanne Pearson and Richard H. Roberts), and Healing Powers and Modernity: Traditional Medicine, Shamanism, and Science in Asian Societies (2001, with Linda Connor).
