Synopsis and/or Reviews

"Contentment and Suffering, " a psychocultural ethnography of the Toraja wet-rice farmers of Indonesia, provides a rich portrait of Torajan life and contributes to debates on the relationship between culture and individual psychology.

Hollan and Wellenkamp describe the central aspects of Torajan personal experience -emotion, identity, and sense of self- and a variety of fascinating cultural practices, including possession trance, kickfights, elaborate mortuary customs, dream interpretation, and buffalo sacrifice.

Presenting exceptionally detailed ethnographic data through a person-centered perspective and extensive use of open-ended interviews, "Contentment and Suffering" engagingly expresses how the Toraja understand their lives.
