Book summary

This is 'an imaginative social anthropologist's view of the sacred.[which] brings together examples of rituals, beliefs and tabus from many societies and many religions to show how celebrations of the sacred allow man to know their origins, to understand the meaning of their societies and come to terms with death. Above all, it involves the symbolism of the sacred'. [via]
