Sir James George Frazer's The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion is a broad comparative study of mythology and religion. Treating religion as a cultural phenomenon rather than discussing it from a theological perspective, the effect of The Golden Bough on both European literature and the emerging discipline of anthropology was substantial. The pioneering anthropologist Bronislaw Malinowski said of it: "No sooner had I read this great work than I became immersed in it and enslaved by it. I realized then that anthropology, as presented by Sir James Frazer, is a great science, worthy of as much devotion as any of her elder and more exact studies and I became bound to the service of Frazerian anthropology."

A classic study of the beliefs and institutions of mankind, and the progress through magic and religion to scientific thought, The Golden Bough has a unique status in modern anthropology and literature. First published in 1890, The Golden Bough was eventually issued in a twelve-volume edition (1906-15) which was abridged in 1922 by the author and his wife. That abridgement has never been reconsidered for a modern audience. In it some of the more controversial passages were dropped, including Frazer's daring speculations on the Crucifixion of Christ. For the first time this one-volume edition restores Frazer's bolder theories and sets them within the framework of a valuable introduction and notes. A seminal work of modern anthropolgy, The Golden Bough also influenced many twentieth-century writers, including D H Lawrence, T S Eliot, and Wyndham Lewis. Its discussion of magical types, the sacrificial killing of kings, the dying god, and the scapegoat is given fresh pertinence in this new edition. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Flash! is a cultural history of flash photography, from its mid-nineteenth beginnings to the present day. All photography requires light, but the light of flash photography is quite distinctive: artificial, sudden, shocking, intrusive, and extraordinarily bright. For the first time, flash's history is told by putting it in the context of the broad, transnational development of photographic practices. Spanning a wide range of fascinating topics, Flash! explores role that flash has played in contributing to a popular denigration, or suspicion, of the photographer, and the role of the paparazzi, how flash photography has been used to reveal social deprivation and poverty and the representation and misrepresentation of race, how flash captures ordinary everyday life and makes us look at it anew, and how it illuminates things that would otherwise be lost in darkness. Drawing on the work of professionals and amateurs, news hounds and art photographers, photographers of crime and of wildlife, and on photographic journals and manuals, photographers' memoirs and interviews, exhibition reviews, advertisements and the volume captures those moments when flash erupts into novels, poems, TV, and films. Generously illustrated throughout, Flash! brings out the central role of this medium to the history of photography, and in doing so, challenges some commonly held ideas about the nature of photography itself.

An expert in myth and religion, the author spent over a quarter-century assembling this study of the cults, rites, and myths of antiquity. Frazer's definitions of "magic," "religion," and "science" were useful to his successors in social anthropology, and his explications of ancient legends influenced generations of writers and poets.
