Temiar Religion, 1964-2012: Enchantment, Disenchantment An Re-enchantment In Malaysia’s Upland

Benjamin’s work amongst the Temiar aboriginal people of North Malaysia began as he prepared for his doctoral thesis in the 1960s. In this book, he not only revisits his earlier work, but brings it up to date on the basis of his continued living with and research amongst the Temiars since then. This ethnographic study can be read on many levels, not only as a study of Temiar religion, but also as an exploration of religion in societies generally and as a record of the changing intellectual framework of anthropology since Benjamin first encountered the Temiars.
