About the Author

Victor Turner (1920-1983) was professor of religion and anthropology at the University of Chicago. He authored many books, including Dramas, Fields, and Metaphors: Symbolic Action in Human Society and Revelation and Divination in Ndembu Ritual, both published by Cornell.


"This is a collection of ten essays dealing with various aspects of symbolism and ritual among the Ndembu of Zambia in central Africa... Using data of extraordinary richness, it presents some of the most provocative and suggestive theories recently advanced in the study of ritual behavior and symbolism... It provides one of the few postwar studies sure to rank as an ethnographic classic."-Africa "A collection of ten of the most brilliant and important essays on ritual yet written. These papers by Victor Turner ... are all seminal and distinguished."-American Anthropologist
