In this volume the author has reworked the materials in many of her
earlier monographs and papers on Albania, Montenegro, Serbia and Bosnia.
Although the data is presented in a folkloristic framework this does not detract
from its value and reliability. The best sections are those on tribal groupings
in Northern Albania and Montenegro, law and blood feuds, rites of passage,
sorcery and witchcraft and on medical beliefs.
