"So far as I know, there is no other account of eighteenth-century interest in shamanism that so carefully demonstrates changes in the evaluation of the practice, nor do I know any other that connects these changes with the then-occurring revaluation of the concept of original genius--as is here done with considerable plausibility. I read this book with great eagerness and interest."
