Book Description

The Indo Europeans are defined by a common group of languages that extend, as the name implies, from India to Ireland. The languages include the many Hindu and other Indian languages, that of the Persians, the Kurds, Armenians, the extinct Hittites, and the languages of Europe excluding Basque, Hungarian, and Finnish. Among these peoples extensive mythologies have survived in Indian, Persian, Greek, Norse or Germanic, Irish, and Welsh. Our studies have analyzed all of these six mythologies collectively and to a depth that far exceeds all previous studies. Our result is that we have shown that all of these mythologies are derived from the histories of seven members of six generations of one family, the “Family of the Gods”. These histories are most completely preserved in Indian mythology and religion. In Indian terms they extend from Brahma to Krishna.

The Indian accounts are uniquely valuable and are indeed essential to understanding all of the mythologies. In particular we find that links to India can be found in each of the other five mythologies but links between the others are less frequent. However Indian mythology is not only vast in its extent but the Indo European elements are immersed in a huge number of writings and solely Indian religious works. As a result we have been obliged to construct the present dictionary to disentangle and analyze the frequently discordant data.

The book is quite exhaustive in its content but its is missing a table of contents that links to different parts of the book. Say if i need to jump to the letter 'P' there is no way to do it except search for 'INITIAL P'. This is quite annoying. Other than that the book delivers what it promises on the cover..
