University colleagues joined Dr Robert J. Wallis and his co-author Dr Graham Harvey on Wednesday 24 February, to raise a glass and celebrate the launch of the revised and expanded second edition of the Historical Dictionary of Shamanism.
“A remarkable array of people have been called shamans, while the phenomena identified as shamanism continues to proliferate. This revised and expanded second edition of the Historical Dictionary of Shamanism by Graham Harvey and Robert Wallis includes hundreds of new cross-referenced dictionary entries on individuals, groups, practices and cultures that have been called “shamanic”, a chronology, an introduction, and an extensive annotated bibliography. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Shamanism.”
