Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This book is constantly surprising the reader with fresh insights into relationships between sources from different cultures, disciplines, and times and providing insightful commentary. The panoramic, cross-cultural perspective spanning human history from the Paleolithic through modern popular culture was exhilarating, and the range of disciplines covering anthropology, religious studies, philosophy, science and literature formidable. It is unarguably a work reflecting great erudition and a mental prowess for synthesis.” — Lynda D. McNeil, University of Colorado, Boulder
