Brenda Ralph Lewis (au). Nature’s potential to assault & destroy has been humanity’s perennial predicament, & for thousands of years, offering sacrifices to appease these forces has been the only response. Here is the first general overview of sacrificial practices all over the world, from prehistoric times to the present day, visiting civilizations as diverse as Ancient Greece & pre-Hispanic Mexico. It covers many cultures & beliefs: Druids, Vodun, Aztecs & shamanism. The methods & motives of sacrifice are fully illustrated throughout, be they human, animal, floral or inanimate. The book concludes with a chapter detailing the role & practice of sacrifice today, & its importance to the peace of mind of those who still perform these rites. Color & B&W photos.
