Summary

This is the story of Santa Muerte, the so-called cult of crisis, a red-hot combo of a kermesse (Mexican carnival), Catholicism and New Age; a hedonist practice but involving bodily sacrifice too. It is an expression of economic, psychological and social forces, bigger than perhaps any of her acolytes suspect. This book looks at the folk saint and the manner in which her cult grew. You will learn about Santa Muerte like never before.

Meh

There is a definite lack of respect to this book. It was not at all what I was expecting.

Good concise overview of Santa Muerte.

This audio is short enough to hold your interest yet long enough to present the basics.
