God of Justice by William S. Sax God of Justice, Paperback (December 2008)

In God of Justice, anthropologist William S. Sax offers a fascinating glimpse into the world of cursing, black magic, and ritual healing in the Central Himalayas of North India. Based on ten years' ethnographic fieldwork, God of Justice shows how these practices are part of a moral system based on the principle of family unity.

Dancing the Self by William S. Sax Dancing the Self, Hardback (October 2001)

The inhabitants of the former kingdom of Garhwal, located in north India are deeply devoted to the great Indian national epic, the "Mahabharata". This book opens a window on a fascinating (and threatened) aspect of rural Indian life and Hinduism as a living religion, and provides an accessible introduction to the "Mahabharata" itself.
