Om boken

The multifarious and sometimes contested concept of “shamanism” has aroused intense popular and scholarly interest since its initial coinage by the Russian scholar V. M. Mikhailovsky in the late 19th century. In this book, three leading scholars, representing different branches of the humanities, dwell on the current status of shamanic practices and conceptions of the soul, both as ‘etic’ scholarly categories in historical research and as foci of spiritual revitalization among the indigenous populations of post-Soviet Siberia.

Peter Jackson is the editor of the book. He is Professor and Deputy Head of the History of Religions at the Department of Ethnology, History of Religions and Gender Studies at Stockholm University. He is also the Editor in Chief of Stockholm Studies in Comparative Religion.
