The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion: A New Abridgement
Matt Friedman's review
Jul 25, 2011
As outdated as it is, this is still a critical text, if only to observe a key moment in the history of the discipline. Highly influential, although some of Frazer's anti-Christian polemic has long since been refuted by secular as well as Christian scholarship.
