1932 Sorcerers of Dobu
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper
A fascinating and comprehensive social anthropological work on the Dobu Islanders of the Western Pacific. The Dobu Island is part of D'Entrecasteaux Islands in Papua New Guinea, and is occupied by small villages and groups.
Written by Reo Franklin Fortune, a New Zealand-born social anthropologist, and including an introduction by Bronislaw Malinowski, Professor of Anthropology at the University of London.
Fortune depicts the Dobu Islanders as a paranoid group of people, who engage heavily with Black Magic and alternative spiritual beliefs. He also ascertained they had unusual attitudes towards violence and sex.
