A general, comparative review of the religions of traditional societies-- of their character and the variations among them.

From the Back Cover:

This book reflects the author's belief that by searching for what religion means in the life of traditional peoples, we may be better able to understand the meaning of religion in our own society. To do so, they present the pertinent anthropological data on religion, review the similarities and variations in religion as they can be seen in traditional societies, and consider the role in the life of the individual and society.
