Golden Bough (1890) - James George Frazer

  1. Golden Bough (1890) - James George Frazer [Amazon.com]

    The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion is a wide-ranging comparative study of mythology and religion by Scottish anthropologist Sir James George Frazer (1854-1941), first published in 1890. It was aimed at a broad literate audience raised on tales as told in such publications as Bulfinch's Age of Fable. It offered a modernist approach, discussing religion dispassionately as a cultural phenomenon, rather than from a theological perspective. While the worth of its contribution to anthropology will be newly evaluated by each generation, its impact on contemporary European literature was unquestionably large. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Golden_Bough [Aug 2006]
