  • About the Edition

    Vodou has often served as a scapegoat for Haiti"s problems, from political upheavals to natural disasters. This tradition of scapegoating stretches back to the nation"s founding and forms part of a contest over the legitimacy of the religion, both beyond and within Haiti"s borders. The Spirits and the Law examines that vexed history, asking why, from 1835 to 1987, Haiti banned many popular ritual practices.
