Africa's Ogun : Old World and New
Sixteen contributions, including five new essays and a new introduction, explore the international vitality of Ogun, the ancient African god of iron, war, and hunting who is worshipped by more than 40 million adherents in West Africa, the Caribbean, and the Americas. The papers are divided into three sections: the history and spread of Ogun in the old and new worlds; the meaning of Ogun in ritual, myth, and art; and transformations of Ogun.
