The Golden Bough: A Study of Magic and Religion
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2015. máj. 18. - 658 oldal
James Frazer's monumental study of world mythology and folklore has been a controversial work for over a century. The Golden Bough is "a great body of primitive and barbarous beliefs" and essential reading for anyone interested in mythology, supernatural magic or religion, especially modern neo-pagan practices. More than one critic has said that it should be required reading for everyone.
"To read [The Golden Bough] is to share in the adventure of mankind's cultural Odyssey and to undergo an enlargement of one's own sympathy and understanding for one's fellow beings...It is a book to be read and reread." -- Ashley Montagu.
This Enhanced Media edition is based on Frazer's single volume 1922 edition.
