From Library Journal
In this copiously illustrated book, Green (Dictionary of Celtic Myth and Legend, LJ 3/1/92) discusses the Druids in depth. She begins by analyzing the classical writings on Druids. She also discusses the role of historical and archaeological analysis, showing how little is known and how scholarly inquiry may or may not arrive at the truth, particularly since the Druids based their learning and training on memorization and the oral tradition. The author examines the archaeological finds and the conclusions drawn from that. She discusses the Druid resurgence in the 19th century and the Druids' role in the 20th-century neopagan movement. Well written, thoughtful, and thought-provoking, this work would make an excellent companion to John Matthews's The Druid Source Book (Sterling, 1996). Highly recommended.?Gail Wood, SUNY Coll. of Technology Lib., Alfred

The World of the Druids is a great book for those interested in the Druids and of the Celts and those who would like solid information devoid of the romantic interpretation first put forward in the 18th century. Don't get me wrong, the book does indeed touch on the romantic interpretations of the Druids yet separates such views to place them in context.
The book definitely clears-up much misinformation on the Druids, their belief structures, and forms of worship. Green is very careful to point out what we know and what we don't know concerning the Celts and their religion.
If you are fascinated by all things Celtic, Druidic, or even a lover of mythology, religion, and ancient history, then this is a book you will likely want to have in your collection.
