Initially intended as an anthropological study, the original "Golden Bough" became a study of the origins of magic and religion. This abridged edition holds a magnifying glass to Frazer's insights into the nature of magic and religion and focuses on the central theme of sympathetic magic. Illustrated throughout with art, artifacts and images from around the world, it draws on historical and social evidence to reveal the spiritual essence of man.
