Ancestors in Borneo Societies
Death, Transformation, and Social Immortality
This first major study of ancestors in Borneo societies challenges classic ethnographic representations of ancestor worship and genealogical understandings of ancestors in anthropology. It will be of lasting interest far beyond the bounds of Borneo studies and will enrich the broader anthropological scholarship on ancestors, kinship, and religion.
