This book, which is in French, derives from a detailed empirical study of the Komo, a population of some 60,000 hunter-gatherers in Zaire. Dr de Mahieu builds a new theory of ritual practice on to his description and analysis of circumcision rituals among the Komo, and draws important comparisons between the significance of these rituals to the actual participants and to wider Komo society and beliefs.
