Editorial Reviews

Review

This is an excellent review of the vast body of research anthropologists have done on religion around the world and through the history of our species. Winzeler discusses and critiques the underlying assumptions and theoretical orientations as well as the empirical findings of a number of anthropologists. The book is clear that these are not just matters of long ago and far away but pertain to the contemporary world of today's news. This is an excellent book for courses on the anthropology of religion as well as for people who want to know what anthropologists have to say on the topic. In many years of teaching courses on the anthropology of religion, I have found no book to match it for comprehensive coverage. (E. Paul Durrenberger, Pennsylvania State University)

Interesting to note that there have been and still are hundreds of religions that go unnoticed or neglected by most of us. Humans seek answers to life's unknowns and satisfy themselves with many beliefs.

It's a required book for a class. It answers the questions the instructor asks.
