Talking About the Elephant by Lupa
rating: 4 of 5 stars
A thoughtful collection of essays addressing issues of cultural appropriation as it relates to modern paganism. These authors approach the subject from various angles, exploring the pluses and minuses of adopting spiritual practices from other cultures. Some authors rely a little heavily on online sources, but for the most part, this is well-researched, scholarly, yet accessible.
I picked this up because an online friend, Thea Faye (theafaye), wrote one of the essays, and I found her exploration of concerns related to New Zealand paganism to be fascinating.
