Wie sähe eine Welt aus, in der jede Sünde, jeder dunkle Gedanke sichtbar wäre? Smoke entführt den Leser in ein England vor hundert Jahren, in dem jede Verfehlung mit Rauch bestraft wird, der dem Körper entweicht. Auch Thomas und Charlie, Schüler eines Elite-Internats, werden immer wieder durch Rauch-Attacken gebrandmarkt, wenn sie den strengen Schulregeln nicht genügen. Doch dann finden sie – fast zufällig – heraus, dass die Gesetze des Rauchs längst nicht für alle gelten. Wieso gibt es böse Menschen, die nicht von Ruß befleckt sind? Und welche Rolle spielt der Rauch bei den sozialen und politischen Umbrüchen ihrer Zeit? Auf der Suche nach der Wahrheit begeben sich die Freunde auf eine dramatische Reise voller riskanter Abenteuer und düsterer Intrigen und rufen damit schon bald mächtige Feinde auf den Plan ... Smoke ist ein sprachmächtiger, überbordend einfallsreicher Roman und zugleich eine kluge Parabel, die facettenreich die existenziellen Fragen nach Macht und Moral, Wahrheit und Lüge, Gut und Böse beleuchtet.

Animal sacrifice has been critical to the study of ancient Mediterranean religions since the eighteenth century. More recently, two leading views on sacrifice have dominated the subject: the psychological approach of Walter Burkert and the sociological one by Jean-Pierre Vernant and Marcel Detienne. These two perspectives have argued that the main feature of sacrifice is allaying feelings of guilt at the slaughter of sacrificial animals. However, both approaches leave little room for the role of the priests and the gods they hope to communicate with. Nor do they allow for comparison between animal sacrifice and other oblations offered to the gods. F. S. Naiden redresses the omission of these salient features to show that, far from being an attempt to assuage guilt or achieve solidarity, animal sacrifice is an attempt to make contact with a divine being, and that it is so important for—and perceived to be so risky for—the worshippers that it becomes subject to regulations of unequaled extent and complexity. Sacrificial priests are the most closely regulated of all Greek officials, and sacrifice itself is the most closely regulated public business. All this anxiety and effort invites some explanation, yet to date scholars have paid little attention to these regulations. Smoke Signals for the Gods addresses these, while drawing on recent work on Greek sacred law and Greek religious terminology. Furthermore, it seek to explain how mistaken views of sacrifice and animals arose, and traces them farther into the past, often back to early Christianity. Drawing on a wealth of sources, this book provides a complete picture of ancient animal sacrifice.

Recently identified as a killer, tobacco has been the focus of health warnings, lawsuits, and political controversy. Yet many Native Americans continue to view tobacco-when used properly-as a life-affirming and sacramental substance that plays a significant role in Native creation myths and religious ceremonies. This definitive work presents the origins, history, and contemporary use (and misuse) of tobacco by Native Americans. It describes wild and domesticated tobacco species and how their cultivation and use may have led to the domestication of corn, potatoes, beans, and other food plants. It also analyzes many North American Indian practices and beliefs, including the concept that Tobacco is so powerful and sacred that the spirits themselves are addicted to it. The book presents medical data revealing the increasing rates of commercial tobacco use by Native youth and the rising rates of death among Native American elders from lung cancer, heart disease, and other tobacco-related illnesses. Finally, this volume argues for the preservation of traditional tobacco use in a limited, sacramental manner while criticizing the use of commercial tobacco. Contributors are: Mary J. Adair, Karen R.
