    Most scholarship on sorcery and witchcraft has narrowly focused on specific times and places, particularly early modern Europe and twentieth-century Africa. And much of that research interprets sorcery as merely a remnant of premodern traditions. Boldly challenging these views,Sorcery in the Black Atlantictakes a longer historical and broader geographical perspective, contending that sorcery is best understood as an Atlantic phenomenon that has significant connections to modernity and globalization. A distinguished group of contributors here examine sorcery in Brazil, Cuba, South Africa, Cameroon, and Angola. Their insightful essays reveal the way practices and accusations of witchcraft spread throughout the Atlantic world from the age of discovery up to the present, creating an indelible link between sorcery and the rise of global capitalism. Shedding new light on a topic of perennial interest,Sorcery in the Black Atlanticwill be provocative, compelling reading for historians and anthropologists working in this growing field.

    Luis Nicolau Par�s is professor of anthropology at the Federal University of Bahia, Brazil. Roger Sansi is lecturer in anthropology at Goldsmiths, University of London.
