Enduring Identities: The Guise of Shinto in Contemporary Japan

I was hoping this would give more specific information about Shinto rituals, such as death. I found it a bit dry, and wasn't exactly what I was looking for. But still useful for information about Shinto, which isn't exactly in abundance in local bookstores.
