From Our Editors

'Myth and Method is a significant contribution to the study of religion, culture, method, and comparison, summarizing, with fairness, the crisis in the study of mythology that has developed in the last ten years. The volume strives for a balance between two centrifugal forces in academic discourse: the exclusive focus on method and an exclusive focus on area studies, addressing their strengths without aligning itself to the provincialism of either.
