Medicine and Magic of the Mashona.


Rhodesia is a country of strong contrasts,most of which are materialisticaly obvious.But there are other contrasts which,if less obvious,are even more remarkable,that of the practice of advanced scientific methods in a modern society,parallel with the practice of the rudiments of the same crafts in a primitive society.In this book Dr. Gelfand,balances medicine and magic together,to obtaining a better understanding of the African mind,and finds that although primitive,they have a lot to offer,towards a healthy mind and society.
