25.00

Berkeley: University of California Press, 2003. First Edition. Hardcover. Octavo. Red cloth with black spine titles. No dust jacket. 259 pages, b/w photographs. CD of ritual music, most recorded in Haiti by the author, in envelope affixed to rear pastedown. Tiny corner bump else a near fine copy. CD appears unplayed.

Rara is a vibrant annual street festival in Haiti, when followers of Vodou march loudly into public space to take an active role in politics. Working deftly with highly original ethnographic material, Elizabeth McAlister shows how Rara bands harness the power of Vodou spirits and the recently dead to broadcast coded points of view with historical, gendered, and transnational dimensions.
