'Shinto: A Short History is a benchmark publication in Shinto studies.' - Monumenta Nipponica
'This book should have wide appeal to teachers of East Asian relgions as a detailed textbook for upper-level undergraduates and taught postgraduates, as well as being a useful resource for scholars. The use of the concept of 'religious tradition' as an analytical framework is an important contribtution and gives much food for thought for all scholars of religious studies.' Social Anthropology
