  • This anthology is the result of recent field work by sixteen anthropologists, containing accounts of all forms of spirit possession and shamanism found among the peoples of Nepal. In the last few year this relatively new field has drawn an ever- increasing international body of anthropologists attracted by the complexity and variety of the phenomenon. The social, religious, psychic and therapeutic aspects of spirit possession are dealt within a broadly regional and ethnic basis and the collection is completed with contributions on lamaist spirit possession and historical observations.
