[Download E-pub] ☪ Folk Religion in Japan: Continuity and Change (The Haskell Lectures on History of Religions) ⚆ Ichiro Hori S Is The First Book In Western Literature To Portray How Shinto, Buddhist, Confucian, And Taoist Elements, As Well As All Manner Of Archaic Magical Beliefs And Practices, Are Fused On The Folk Level Folk Religion, Transmitted By The Common People From Generation To Generation, Has Greatly Conditioned The Political, Economic, And Cultural Development Of Japan And Continues To Satisfy The Emotional And Religious Needs Of The People Hori Examines The Organic Relationship Between The Japanese Social Structure The Family Kinship System, Village And Community Organizations And Folk Religion A Glossary With Japanese Characters Is Included In The Index Ridiculously out of date and difficult to take seriously at points, though there are many useful points. A well written book about beliefs in Japan and their orgins, although I recommend doing some reading on the subject before reading this books as it is filled with words one might not understand.Also, it is an old book, first published in 1968, so it is not completely up to date. Excellent book Although a bit dated, it contains a lot of interesting informations about japanese folk religion I m not a native english speaker, but i enjoyed a lot and read it in couple of weeks Each chapter has its fascinating implications and i wish i couple readfrom Ichico Hori.
