KIRKUS REVIEW

As its subtitle, Primitive Man, his Religion and his Gods, indicates, this massive volume presents an all-embracing study of religious beliefs and practices among primitive peoples the world over and throughout the ages. Basing his study on the evidence of archaeological remains and existing myths, he tells of rites widely separated in time and distance but astonishingly similar in practice. Carefully documented and encyclopedic in scope.
