"The book is methodologically sophisticated and can be recommended to anyone wishing to be brought up to date in the field of Greek religion." Journal of the American Academy of Religion "...brims with enthusiasm for the subject and for current theoretical approaches." Jon D. Mikalson, Bryn Mawr Classical Review "...an up-to-date, concise and readable textbook, which brings to the English-speaking general reader a synthesis of much of the past thirty years' work of the 'Paris School' of classical studies...The translation is lively, but sacrifices none of the theoretical rigour of the text...This is a challenging, absorbing study, to be recommended to anyone with an interest in the history of religion." Helen King, Times Literary Supplement
