This groundbreaking study explores the notions of person, and the foundations of bodily and moral experience among the Uduk-speaking people of the Sudan-Ethiopian border. James focuses particularly on enduring elements of personal knowledge in the context of a hunter's world-view, how alien religious discourse has affected the Uduk in the course of the region's political history, and the rise of a new diviners' movement based upon the oracular consultation of the burning ebony wood.
