(color plate frontis., b&w illustrations) This book "has been hailed as the best and the most generally accessible book by Claude Lévi-Strauss, the founder of structuralism and one of the most influential thinkers of the twentieth century. It is an entertainment for the intellect, a diverting series of themes and variations [that] explores the mythologies of the Americas, with occasional incursions into European and Japanese folklore."
