Pugot: Head Taking, Ritual Cannibalism, and Human Sacrifice in the Philippines by Narciso C. Tan is the first comprehensive study of ancient Filipino ritualized forms of violence. The book also reveals these practices not in isolation, but as part of the wider Southeast Asian and Austronesian milieu. Encyclopedic in its approach and comparative in its analysis, this ambitious book weaves together historical data and archaeological studies with traditional myths, legends, and songs, to create a seamless narrative of some of the most misunderstood aspects of Philippine culture and to shed light on early modern cultures of violence.
