Book Summary:

The story takes place in South Africa and India. In South Africa, the narrator, Paul, drifts between an ideal world, where he is happily married to his partner Nirraz, and a dark and horrible nightmare where an unidentified madman is torturing him in the gay couple's own wine cellar. Nirraz is a sociologist and his lover Paul teaches biology at the local school. The couple have the special ability to experience the same grotesque dreams-they recite their ten dreams to a psychologist. The couple is friends with their neighbour Sheila, a divorcée, her boyfriend Peter and her son Liam, who gets close to the gay couple. There is lots of goings on in the Jacuzzi of the gay couple's home and an atmosphere of sexual jealously arises. The madman's life and the ten dreams are connected to a remote village in India where an eighty-year-old hermaphrodite virgin, Shamele, is responsible for creating dream pills. The pills allow one to dream of one's death and one's reincarnation. A yellow butterfly carved out of a stone taken from the mountain near the village is believed to be cursed and was sold to a South African tourist-the yellow butterfly became an integral part of the madman's childhood. Paul's happy world starts crumbling as terrible events take place in his hometown. His ideal world merges with his nightmare in the cellar and a macabre twist at the end plunges him into a dark world where the fates of the torturer and his helpless victim are finally decided. This book is not for the feint hearted.

Book Summary:

Walter E. A. van Beek draws on over four decades of extensive fieldwork to offer an in-depth study of the religion of the Kapsiki/Higi, who live in the Mandara Mountains on the border between North Cameroon and Northeast Nigeria. Concentrating on ritual as the core of traditional religion, van Beek shows how Kapsiki/Higi practices have endured through the long and turbulent history of the region. Kapsiki rituals reveal a focus on two fundamental concepts: dwelling and belonging. Van Beek examines their sacrificial practices, through which the Kapsiki show a complex and pervasive connection with the Mandara Mountains, as well as the character of their relationships among themselves and with outsiders. Van Beek also explores their rituals of belonging, rites of passage which take place from birth through initiation and marriage - and even death, with the tradition of the ''dancing dead,'' when a fully decorated corpse on the shoulders of a smith ''dances'' with his mourning kinsmen. The Dancing Dead is the result of the author's lifelong study of the Kapsiki/Higi. It gives a unique description of the rituals in an African traditional religion based not upon ancestors, but on a completely relational thought system, where in the end all rituals are integrated into one major cycle.

Book Summary:

This volume had its beginnings in the two-day colloquium, "Rethinking Chichén Itzá, Tula and Tollan," that was held at Dumbarton Oaks. The selected essays revisit long-standing questions regarding the nature of the relationship between Chichen Itza and Tula. Rather than approaching these questions through the notions of migrations and conquests, these essays place the cities in the context of the emerging social, political, and economic relationships that took shape during the transition from the Epiclassic period in Central Mexico, the Terminal Classic period in the Maya region, and the succeeding Early Postclassic period.
