Power, slavery, and spirit possession in East Africa: a few reflections

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivistapeer review

Abstract

Spirit possession and its relationship with power aims to offer here a few opportunities towards a better understanding not only of East African societies, but most of all, of their historical role in numerous political and military conflicts and also within peace-building processes, that represent a continuation of a topic of long-standing concern in East African history. The relationships between religions, local cultures and institutional powers throughout contemporary East African history offer here a few reflection spaces.
