"Written from the perspective that culture and religion are both holistic systems composed of interrelated elements, including belief, ritual, mythology, and ethics, this text explores religion's enduring role in political, economic, and social affairs. Angrosino has taken a unique approach to capture the attention of readers who are new to the study of religion and culture."--BOOK JACKET.
