Eliade, Mircea, 1907-1986. Trask, Willard R., translator.  
Shamanism. Archaic Techniques of Ecstasy. Translated from the French by Willard R. Trask.

Publisher: Pantheon Books [1964]. Bollingen Series LXXVI.
xxiii, 610 p., index. Originally published in French as Le Chamanisme et les techniques archaïques de l'extase by Libraire Payot, Paris, 1951. Revised and enlarged for the present edition. "To the best of our knowledge the present book is the first to cover the entire phenomenon of shamanism and at the same time to situate it in the general history of religions. ...the immense shamanic bibliography has neglected to interpret this extremely complex phenomenon in the framework of the history of religions. ...Far be it from us to think of belittling the admirable studies undertaken from the viewpoints of psychology, sociology, or ethnology; we consider them indispensable to understanding the various aspects of shamanism." Chapters include General Considerations. Recruiting Methods. Shamanism & Mystical Vocation; Initiatory Sicknesses & Dreams; Obtaining Shamanic Powers (The Shaman's Female Tutelary Spirits); Shamanic Initiation (discusses Tungus, Manchu, Yakut, Samoyed & Ostyak, Buryat, Araucanian Shamaness, Ritual Tree Climbing, Celestial Journey of the Carib Shaman, Ascent by the Rainbow, Australian Initiations); Symbolism of the Shaman's Costume & Drum; Shamanism in Central and North Asia I. Celestial Ascents. Descents to the Underworld. II. Magical Cures. The Shaman as Psychopomp; Shamanism & Cosmology; Shamanism in North & South America; Southeast Asian & Oceanian Shamanism; Shamanic Ideologies & Techniques among the Indo-Europeans; Shamanic Symbolisms & Techniques in Tibet, China & the Far East; Parallel Myths, Symbols & Rites.

Smith, Timothy L.  
Revivalism and Social Reform in Mid-Nineteenth-Century America

Publisher: New York & Nashville: Abingdon Press, 1957..
First Edition. 23½ X 16 cm. Near Fine/VG. Brown cloth, foil-on-black titles on spine, 253 pp, footnotes, bibliography, index. Slight wear to spine ends. DJ has a 4 cm tear with creasing, a few small (under 1 cm) tears & chips, corners of flaps trimmed, original bookseller's sticker on front panel; in Brodart archival cover. This is an expansion of the Brewer Prize Essay for 1955. From the DJ: "The evangelists of this period played a vital role in preparing the way for the attack on slavery, poverty, and greed. It was the quest for perfection, together with moving compassion for poor and needy sinners and a rebirth of millenial expectations, that joined to make popular Protestantism a mighty social force long before the conflict over slavery burst into flame. Otherworldly attitudes contributed to temporal causes in such proportion that the religious historian examining this new evidence will conclude, as does Dr. Smith, that revivalism and holiness in the mid-19th century plowed the ground from which the social gospel was to grow." Shipping weight 2 lbs.
