For anthropologists it has always been necessary to question and confront the components of religion, in order to understand its influence in society. In the second edition of the highly acclaimed Reader in the Anthropology of Religion, Michael Lambek collects some of the most significant classic and contemporary writings on the subject, creating an unparalleled guide to the past, present, and future of the field.Including nine additional selections, among them classic pieces by Pouillon, Burridge, and Meyerhoff, as well as more contemporary work by Harding, De Boeck, and Palmi , this volume examines numerous aspects of religion in a diversity of cultures, and expands upon the idea of what we mean by 'religion ', linking it to some of the broader questions of culture and politics. Lambek begins with a general introduction to familiarize the reader with the subject matter, and then prefaces each selection with helpful contextual remarks and suggestions for further reading. Additionally, the inclusion of research tools and an extensive bibliography indexed by both ethnographic region and religious topics and practices lends unsurpassed accessibility to this text.
