Cubeo Heh newa Religious Thought: Metaphysics of a Northwestern Amazonian People
The societies of Vaup s region are among the most documented indigenous cultures, in part because they are thought to resemble earlier civilizations lost during initial colonial conflict, and students and scholars are eagerly awaiting the publication of this posthumous work by the man widely regarded as the preeminent authority on Vaup s Amazonian societies. This definitive account of the religion of a significant Amazonian culture was substantially completed before Irving Goldman's death, but Peter Wilson has edited it for publication, providing an introduction to Goldman's work.
