  • The Price of Monotheismby Jan Assmann; Robert Savage

    Stanford University Press 2009; US$ 20.95

    Nothing has so radically transformed the world as the distinction between true and false religion.

  • Shintoby Mark Teeuwen

    Amsterdam University Press 2004; US$ 18.75

    In het Japanse landschap zijn shintoheiligdommen en -heiligdommetjes even onontkoombaar als kersenbloesem en karaokebars. Men vindt ze op verlaten bergtoppen en op de daken van kantoorgebouwen, tussen landelijke rijstvelden en in drukke winkelstraten. Dat shinto een centraal element is van de Japanse identiteit staat buiten kijf. Over de aard van shinto... more...

  • Sourcebook in Shinto: Selected Documentsby Stuart Picken

    ABC-CLIO 2004; US$ 84.00

    Shinto is a remarkably complex and elusive phenomenon to which Western categories of religion do not readily apply. A knowledge of Shinto can only proceed from a basic understanding of Japanese shrines and civilization, for it is closely intermingled with the Japanese way of life and continues to be a vital natural religion. This companion to Picken's... more...

  • Women in Japanese Religionsby Barbara R. Ambros

    NYU Press 2015; US$ 14.00

    Scholars have widely acknowledged thepersistent ambivalence with which the Japanese religious traditions treatwomen.

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 44.95

    Laurel Schneider takes the reader on a vivid journey from the origins of "the logic of the One" - only recently dubbed monotheism - through to the modern day, where monotheism has increasingly failed to adequately address spiritual, scientific, and ethical experiences in the changing world. In Part I, Schneider traces a trajectory from the ancient... more...

  • The Catalpa Bowby Carmen Blacker

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 73.95

    This classic work describes shamanic figures surviving in Japan today, their initiatory dreams, ascetic practices, the supernatural beings with whom they communicate, and the geography of the other world in myth and legend. more...

  • For the Glory of Godby Rodney Stark

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 39.95

    Rodney Stark's provocative new book argues that, whether we like it or not, people acting for the glory of God have formed our modern culture. Continuing his project of identifying the widespread consequences of monotheism, Stark shows that the Christian conception of God resulted--almost inevitably and for the same reasons--in the Protestant Reformation,... more...

  • From Gods to Godby Baruch Halpern; Matthew J. Adams

    Mohr Siebeck 2009; US$ 103.79

    The birth of the West stems from the rejection of tradition. All our evidence for this influence comes from the Axial period, 800-400 BCE. Baruch Halpern explores the impact of changing cosmologies and social relations on cultural change in that era, especially from Mesopotamia to Israel and Greece, but extending across the Mediterranean, not least... more...
