KIRKUS REVIEW

A large order presented with the necessary high spots yet expertly trimmed of non-essentials. At this time of unrest, wars and brewing tempests, many customers are interested in finding out what they can about the other races and nationalities, their history, politics and religions. The God or Gods a man or nation worships often swayed the destiny of the world. This is a fascinating story full of imagery, pageantry, history, mythology and theology. Nothing so condensed and satisfactory as this book has appeared. Put this on your staple list as well as the religious and political history shelves. Read it yourself and learn about Shinto, how Buddhism got into Japan, the difference between Hinduism and Brahmanism, etc. You'll find it most enlightening.
