Chief Dr. Daryl M. Peavy, J.D., Kings, Magic, & Medicine

Pid: 3215

211 pages / páginas
Chief Peavy gives us an unprecedented study of kingship, priesthood, and medicine among the Edo of Benin City. We learn about “native doctors,” their widespread system of medicine and divination, located in the context of Edo historical kingship and Benin City’s relationship with its neighbors, particularly Yoruba Ijebu. There is no other book like it. It is the missing chapter we have been waiting for in our knowledge of West Africa.
