The primary aim of this book is to explain the remarkable rule which regulated the succession to the priesthood of Diana at Aricia. When I first set myself to solve the problem more than thirty years ago, I thought that the solution could be propounded very briefly, but I soon found that to render it probable or even intelligible it was necessary to discuss certain more general questions, some of which had hardly been broached before. In successive editions the discussion of these and kindred topics has occupied more and more space, the enquiry has branched out in more and more directions, until the two volumes of the original work have expanded into twelve. Meantime a wish has often been expressed that the book should be issued in a more compendious form. This abridgment is an attempt to meet the wish and thereby to bring the work within the range of a wider circle of readers. While the bulk of the book has been greatly reduced, I have endeavoured to retain its leading principles, together with an amount of evidence sufficient to illustrate them clearly. The language of the original has also for the most part been preserved, though here and there the exposition has been somewhat condensed. In order to keep as much of the text as possible I have sacrificed all the notes, and with them all exact references to my authorities. Readers who desire to ascertain the source of any particular statement must therefore consult the larger work, which is fully documented and provided with a complete bibliography.

The authoritative 1890 edition with an introduction by Cairns Craig and Frazer’s own afterword. Published originally in two volumes in 1890, this extraordinary study of primitive myth and magic led Scottish anthropologist J.G. Frazer to identify parallel patterns of ritual, symbols and belief across many centuries and many different cultures. His observations on the mysteries of fertility and death, and the rites of the sacrificial king who must die to save his people, overturned much of contemporary intellectual thinking, not least because of the enlightening or ‘heretical’ parallels it suggested with the Christian religion. Frazer’s elegant and authoritative style, and the breadth of his learning inspired a whole generation of ethnographers and comparative anthropologists, and had a particularly powerful effect on many other thinkers and writers such as Sigmund Freud, D.H. Lawrence, Joyce, Yeats and T.S. Eliot. This definitive volume includes the unabridged original 1890 edition as well as several essays and lectures by Frazer. ‘Frazer’s work has epic scale yet mesmerizing fineness of detail. We see the great structures of civilization forming and melting against a background of elemental mystery. The effect is cinematic and sublime.’ Camille Paglia

Frazer, with Freud, Marx, and Jung, is one of the thinkers who have had a deep and pervasive influence on modern literature. One of the great nineteenth-century syntheses, The Golden Bough was the culmination of a century of investigations into myth and ritual. John Vickery locates The Golden Bough in the context of its age and shows how, by gathering up many strands of nineteenth-century thought, it embodied the dominant intellectual tradition shaping the modern spirit. The author's intimate acquaintance with an extraordinary range of modern literature enables him to demonstrate the variety of strategies that poets and novelists have used to assimilate The Golden Bough in their individual attitudes and preoccupations. The remaining chapters of the book are devoted to extended discussions of the intellectual, thematic, and format impact of The Golden Bough on Yeats, Eliot, Lawrence, and Joyce. Originally published in 1973. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

The Golden Bough describes our ancestors' primitive methods of worship, sex practices, strange rituals and festivals. Disproving the popular thought that primitive life was simple, this monumental survey shows that savage man was enmeshed in a tangle of magic, taboos, and superstitions. Revealed here is the evolution of man from savagery to civilization, from the modification of his weird and often bloodthirsty customs to the entry of lasting moral, ethical, and spiritual values.

Frazer's landmark study of primitive myths, magic and and ancient religion, in a freshly edited and newly typeset edition. Also included are a detailed author biography and an original introductory essay discussing the significance, influence and criticisms of this landmark work, providing useful background information, context and perspective for the modern reader. With a large 7.44"x9.69" page size, this Summit Classic edition is printed on hefty 60-lb. bright white paper with a fully laminated cover featuring an original full color design. A detailed, section-by-section Table of Contents for ease in locating specific subject matter, page headers, modern, readable fonts that preserve the feel of classic books and freshly edited and typeset text exemplify the attention to detail given this volume.Not an electronic scan or reproduction, this volume has been prepared by human editors, carefully retaining the original text without alteration. Originally published in a two volume, heavily annotated edition in 1890, Sir James G. Frazer's wide-ranging, comparative study of mythology and religion was a landmark work intended as both a scholarly treatise and a work of general interest. Presupposing a broadly literate audience familiar with tales from the age of fable and Greek and Norse mythology, Frazer took a modernist approach to religion, analyzing it as a cultural phenomenon rather than theological dogma. While not the first to consider religion from a cultural perspective, the breadth and detail of Frazer's work as a social anthpologist made him an influential early voice in the studies of comparative religion and mythology and he is widely considered one of the founding fathers of modern anthropology. By the time a third edition of The Golden Bough was published in 1915 it had grown to twelve heavily annotated volumes and become inaccessible to the average reader. So a single volume abridged edition was published in 1922. This volume contains the complete text of that 1922 edition. All footnotes and the bibliography were removed by Frazer when this edition was originally published, and it is intended for a general and more casual readership, rather than as a scholarly reference work or primary source material. Some of Frazer's theories, such as the natural "Darwinian" progression from magic to religion to science, have been displaced. But some modern criticism of his work is unjustified, relying on the abridged work to come to the conclusion that he made broad assumptions unsupported by evidence when in fact the archaeological support for his conclusions is clearly included in the heavily annotated multi-volume treatise. Frazer's work remains an accessible treasure trove of information on ancient myths, cults, religious beliefs and practices and a view of how primitive man and the ancients thought, the fascinating result of a journey that began with the investigation of an obscure Roman cult centered around an Italian lake and ended with a sweeping view of the development of primitive beliefs in magic, myth and religion in cultures around the world.
