This book explores the main traditional myths which underpin Western culture today; Greek, Norse and Celtic. It shows how they influence political and religious matters in the modern world. It also describes and evaluates other less well known mythologies from Melanesia, Western Mexico and Africa. If one were to imagine that mythology is something relating to a past age, this would be a mistake. It also analyses modern and futuristic mythologies which have a massive influence on thinking now. Such things as Dracula, Frankenstein, Star Trek, Star Wars, Dr. Who, and we must not forget Harry Potter, who is the latest twist in modern mythology. The book also contains an in depth analysis of the Theory of Evolution, in terms of mythology.
