Celebration of Demons by Bruce Kapferer

Book Description

The Sinhalese exorcism rituals are perhaps the most complex and the most magnificent in performance still extant. For this second edition, the author has written a new preface and introduction in which he argues that the techniques of healing in Sri Lanka and the aesthetics of this healing cannot be reduced to Western psychoanalytic or psychotherapeutic terms, and develops new and original approaches to ritual and the aesthetic in general.

2001 and Counting by Bruce Kapferer 2001 and Counting, Paperback (April 2014)

Despite mixed critical reception, Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey mesmerized audiences at the time of its initial screening in 1968 and went on to become one of the highest-grossing films of the decade. In this book, the author revisits the film, making a case for its continued cultural relevance.
