Dr. Ramos’ new book is a great achievement. A beautiful example of “blurred genres,” it combines a smart, well-written scholarly text based on extensive ethno-historical fieldwork with the traditional genre of the sacred “treatise” of the Lucumí religion. Ramos shrewdly weaves together oral history, primary source archival history, African-Diaspora historiography, and his own practical wisdom acquired over decades as a master-of-ceremonies in the Yoruba religion. The work exemplifies academic professionalism and great heart, born of Ramos’ identity as a priest of Oshún.
