Jean Fontaine

Professor Jean La Fontaine is emeritus professor of social anthropology at the London School of Economics, specialising in kinship (children), incest, ritual, witchcraft and Satanism in East Africa and the United Kingdom. She is the author of Speak of the Devil: Tales of Satanic Abuse in Contemporary England, and here she explains that African religions, and the witchcraft that often accompanies them, are deeply embedded in their social context.
