About the Author

Michael Jackson is the Distinguished Visiting Professor of World Religions at the Harvard Divinity School.


"Michael Jackson's The Politics of Storytelling is a radical book for our time. I have never read a more compelling vision of how human beings creatively negotiate the borderlands between their private and public worlds. Not since Clifford Geertz has an anthropologist written with such innovative narrative skill, reaching beyond the academy to illuminate what is culturally at stake in our need to tell stories about the shared worlds we inhabit and remake."--David Carrasco, author of City of Sacrifice: The Aztec Empire and the Role of Vi

"A book that delivers to the reader, in graceful and at times evocative prose, profound insights into the human condition with all its vexing contradictions. Jackson has written a powerful testimony to the human spirit."

--Journal of Anthropological Research
