Description
A practitioner as well as a scholar, Clark (religious studies and human sciences and humanities, U. of Houston) provides an introduction to the religion that was developed in Africa and brought to the Americas, and is part of the Orisha worship religious system. She treads a middle ground between the inaccuracies of popular sensational works, and the technical terminology of specialist academic studies.
