This is an auction for CANNIBALISM AND HUMAN SACRIFICE by Garry Hogg.

The concluding chapter is entitled "Cannibal Practices among the Maori of New Zealand". reviews:

"CANNIBALISM AND HUMAN SACRIFICE is an unsparing record of the barbaric and grisly phenomenon of cannibalism, the practice of which has been recorded throughout history in almost every part of the world. Garry Hogg gives an enthralling account of the primitive customs reported by travellers and anthropologists amongst the peoples of the Pacific Islands, South America, Africa, Indonesia and many more places. This is a fascinating study of these instances of cannibalism and ritualistic human sacrifice, revealing how they were often an accepted part of a community's social order, motivated by religious, magical and superstitious beliefs. The author explores the gruesome reality of cannibalism in all its horrific detail, as a means of understanding what has, in the past, been a neglected subject.

"FIVE STARS!!! For those who are familiar with the subject of cannibalism this book is not only chilling but gruesomely interesting. It is divided up into chapters consisting of the Congo, Fuji, Easter Island, Ancient Aztecs, Amazon Basin, etc. What makes this book unique is that the pages are filled with letters and passages of books written by missionaries and sailors who witnessed cannibalism or interviewed cannibals. The author adds additional information which by far is very informative about the tribe/region practicing cannibalism."
