Scott A. World Mythology. Donna Rosenberg. Register a free business account. Review " Introduction to Mythology is a first-class textbook. I have looked around at many other texts and there are very few with the breadth and depth of this book. It is especially helpful to a teacher trying to cover a lot of global ground in a comprehensive mythology course. Few would have the expertise commanded by the two authors to cover everything from Native American through African through contemporary film myths.
I have been using it since the first edition and haven't yet seen a superior work. Lansverk, Montana State University " Introduction to Mythology covers mythology and also introduces the notion of myth in contemporary narrative form, all the while offering a coherent analytical group of ideas to explain why these themes we find in mythology are still in our narratives today.
And it does so in one book. It is the only book I know of that takes such a comprehensive approach to the subject. Warren, Valencia College. Eva M. Margaret K. Tell the Publisher!
