Dojo: Magic and Exorcism in Modern Japan - Paperback

ISBN: 0804711313

[SR: 1473686], Paperback, [EAN: 9780804711319], Stanford University Press, Stanford University Press, Book, [PU: Stanford University Press], Stanford University Press, "This informative and highly readable book is a study of one of the so-called new religious sects of Japan called Sukyo Mahikari..

Here for the first time we have an in-depth study, based on first-hand experience and participation. ...
