Description

This edited volume mainly focuses on the practice of taking and displaying various body parts as trophies in both North and South America.

The editors and contributors (which include Native Peoples from both continents) examine the evidence and causes of Amerindian trophy taking.

Additionally, they present objectively and discuss dispassionately the topic of human proclivity toward ritual violence.

This book fills the gap in literature on this subject.
