Ochoa discovers in Palo unexpected resources for understanding the relationship between matter and spirit, for rethinking anthropology's rendering of sorcery, and for representing the play of power in Cuban society. Ochoa makes clear that Palo is a world faith with all the depth, narrative excitement, and cultural vitality that such a status implies.
I enthusiastically recommend this book. I could hardly put the book down. It's sure to be a necessary text in any course on Afro-diasporic religions, Caribbean theology, and ethnographic method and writing.
Ochoa's unique relationship to master practitioners of Santerfa and Palo provides an immediacy to his depiction and new insight. Highly recommended. Glazier Choice.

How would Ochoa approach these things, which, despite their banality, still manage to endure and even transform the world? Do not these things, too, exceed capitalist attempts to contain them and Hegelian attempts to reduce them to thought, by virtue of their stubbornly enduring heft? In my view, the transgression of materiality is the transgression of the scholar of materiality, who attends to both the strange and the familiar crap and detritus of life in ways that previous generations of scholars did not.
I am a doctoral student in religious studies.
