An exploration of Eastern mythology as it developed into the distinctive religions of Egypt, India, China and Japan. The primitive roots of the mythology of the world are examined in the light of the most recent discoveries in archaelogy, anthropology, and psychology. Includes an Index. "It isimpossible to read this startling and entertaining book without an enlarged sense of total human possibility and an inceased receptivity - 'open-endedness,' as Thomas Mann called it - to the still living past." - Robert Gorham Davis
