"... peerless... " --The Key Reporter

"... this book is a first. It will be a standard... Comprehensiveness as well as the clarity of the headnotes should make it endure." --Choice

"... so good as it stands... one should simply be happy to have it." --The Journal of the History of Ideas

"... an original, compendious, and highly useful contribution to historical and mythographical scholarship." --The American Scholar

"The Rise of Modern Mythology is a voice of reason in the contemporary maelstrom of international religious violence and American pluralism; more than any book I know, it exposes the roots of the Western appropriation of non-Western mythologies, from Lawrence of Arabia and Omar Khayyam to Tibetan Buddhism in Hollywood and Krishna Consciousness in airports. This is a book that we need now." --Wendy Doniger, Mircea Eliade Distinguished Service Professor of the History of Religions, The University of Chicago
