In this book, cultural anthropologist Moya A. Malamusi gives
readers a rare inside vision of the personalities and
healing practices of traditional asing’anga (healers) in
Malawi, south-east Africa. His account is based on over
thirty years of participant field experience. In this study,
the world views and methods of healers become directly
accessible through field interviews transcribed in Chichewa
and translated with annotations on terminology.
