"Cannibalism and Human Sacrifice" is an unsparing record of the barbaric and grisly phenomenon of cannibalism, the practice of which has been recorded throughout history in almost every part of the world. Garry Hogg gives an enthralling account of the primitive customs reported by travellers and anthropologists amongst the peoples of the Pacific Islands, South America, Africa, Indonesia and many more places besides. This is a fascinating study of these instances of cannibalism and ritualistic human sacrifice, revealing how they were often an accepted part of a community's social order, motivated by religious, magical and superstitious beliefs. The author explores the gruesome reality of cannibalism in all its horrific detail, as a means of understanding what has, in the past, been a somewhat neglected subject.
