Proposing a new theoretical framework, this book explores Shamanism’s links with violence from a global perspective. Renowned anthropologists and authorities in the field draw on their research in Mongolia, China, Korea, Malaysia, Nepal, India, Siberia, America, Papua New Guinea and Taiwan to investigate how indigenous shamanic cultures dealt, and are still dealing with, varying degrees of internal and external violence. This book explores a more sensitive vision of shamanism, closer to the emic views of many indigenous groups.
