This handsome volume of essays . . . is the yield of what can be called an Indologist's holiday. . . . Expertly edited by Joseph Campbell, these essays rest upon Zimmer's belief--a belief which he shares with Jung and others--that the spiritual heritage of archaic man still survives in "the deeper unconscious layers of our soul.' (Saturday Review of Literature)
