Vilaça, Aparecida. 2016. Praying and Preying: Christianity in Indigenous Amazonia, translated by David Rodgers

Reviewed by G.E.R. Lloyd (Needham Research Institute, Cambridge UK). This is a truly remarkable book.  In most anthropological monographs the reader is given a detailed analysis of one particular collectivity, the circumstances of their lives, their kinship relations, social structures, myths, rituals, ways of making sense of the world and of their place in it.
