The Yoruba religious tradition arose in West Africa, but its influence has spread beyond Africa to millions of adherents in the Americas as well. Santeria from Africa to the New World retraces one path taken by this tradition-a path from Africa to Cuba and to New York City. George Brandon examines the religion's transatlantic route through Cuban Santeria, Puerto Rican Espiritismo, and Black Nationalism

In this article, we briefly examine the historical development of black diaspora scholarship outside of geography. This paper is concerned with the social organization of Santeria, as well as some related Afro-American religions observed on the eastern coast of the United States.

On his own terms, Brandon more than fulfills his promise to take the reader on the transatlantic journey of the orisha and to explore the complexities of African memory in the diaspora. In addition, he offers a fresh and cogent assessment of the production and reproduction of African beliefs and practices in new contexts.

"On his own terms, Brandon more than fulfills his promise to take the reader on the transatlantic journey of the orisha and to explore the complexities of African memory in the diaspora." â?American Historical Review

"He adeptly addresses broader issues, such as power relations within Caribbean slavery, multiculturalism, and the forms of religious accommodation to cultural change. In addition, he offers a fresh and cogent assessment of the production and reproduction of African beliefs and practices in new contexts. Brandon's exemplary archival research is supplemented by skillful participant observation." â?Choice

The Yoruba religious tradition arose in West Africa, but its influence has spread beyond Africa to millions of adherents in the Americas as well. Santeria from Africa to the New World retraces one path taken by this traditionâ?a path from Africa to Cuba and to New York City. George Brandon examines the religion's transatlantic route through Cuban Santeria, Puerto Rican Espiritismo, and Black Nationalism. In following the historical and anthropological evolution of the Yoruba religion, Brandon discusses broader questions of power, multiculturalism, cultural change, and the production and reproduction of African retentions.

Kipabi
Mr. Brandon writes about Santeria from the standpoint of an academic rather than a participant. He is not an initiate of the religion, and seemed to use many published sources that are known to be not accurate. In his description of the offerings made to Yemaya, a deity/Orisha, he has made important errors. Throughout the book are factual errors that show that either some of his informants gave him false information (perhaps on purpose--since the religion is still a secret maybe some of his informants were toying with him), or his informants did not know what they were talking about. Errors include details about rituals and the nature of certain deities. The book on the whole is really just a big literature review on Afro-Cuban religion. If you are conducting academic research you should ignore this book entirely. If you are just curious about Santeria you would be better off ignoring this book, and buying something by Joseph Murphy or Lydia Cabrerra.

Westened
Brandon is an anthropologist looking at a very complex system of religions from historical and ethnographic perspectives. He is an insider-participant and a scholar but does not let the latter cloud his rigorous interpretation of Yoruba traditions. Read his chapter on the rise of Santeria in New York City - it was ground-breaking. This book is ONLY for intelligent readers who want to consider OTHER theoretical possibilities for viewing African-based religions in the diaspora.

Thomeena
The title should tell you that this book is written by someone who doesn't have a clue to what he is writing about. How can anybody write a book on a subject they are not well schooled or experienced in? Because they can? The bigger question is how can something like this even get published? Santeria became Santeria when the slaves cleverly blended Ifa with Catholicism,Congo religions, etc. Santeria did not exist in Africa. So the title beginning with, "Santeria, From Africa To...is proof alone this guys a goof. Gonzalez Wippler's books will provide a good understanding about this misunderstood religion. I recommend reading "The Way Of The Orisa", by Phillip Neimark. Bypass Santeria and go the the source and study the original religion of Ifa.
