SUMMARY

"This book presents a strongly argued thesis about the origins of Candomble that is radically different from the usual interpretations presented so far about its origin and status. No serious scholar interested in the process of the transmission of African culture to the Americas will be able to ignore this work."--John K. Thornton, Boston University"A major achievement.The Black Atlanticcase expands and transforms our understanding of both nationalism and transnationalism and offers a wealth of fascinating and little-known data. I am in awe of the extent of the research and the complexity of the analysis."--Sherry B. Ortner, University of California, Los Angeles"A wide-ranging, strongly-argued, rewarding piece of work. The author's deep engagement with his human and intellectual subjects nicely draws the reader into the unfolding story. The book will be a significant contribution to the study of transnationalism. Indeed, it effectively closes the door on some tired but central debates in Afro-American studies and points the way methodologically toward some of the directions research ought to take in the coming years."--Richard Price, author ofFirst-Time, Alabi's World, andThe Convict and The ColonelMatory, James Lorand is the author of 'Black Atlantic Religion Tradition, Transnationalism, And Matriarchy in the Afro-brazilian CandomblT', published 2005 under ISBN 9780691059440 and ISBN 0691059446.
