About the Author

Victor Turner (1920-1983) was professor of religion and anthropology at the University of Chicago. He authored many books, including The Forest of Symbols: Aspects of Ndembu Ritual, Dramas, Fields, and Metaphors: Symbolic Action in Human Society, and Revelation and Divination in Ndembu Ritual, all published by Cornell.


"In the present volume, Turner's remarkably original and wide-ranging mind examines social dramas, usually centering around religious personalities or sacred places, from medieval England to revolutionary Mexico to Zambia, in search of transitions between structure and anti-structure or 'communitas' and the symbols engendered by these processes."-Journal of the American Academy of Religion
