A Dictionary of Asian Mythology
Reviews and Awards
Leeming's latest contribution to world literature is a reference junkie's delight - compact, orderly, suitably priced, and most important, authoritative without swamping the user in pedantry....A sure-footed mythologist, Leeming has a talent for unraveling the intricate strands of interrelated mythologies....From the readable introduction through the Zs, Leeming's instructive voice reveals the certainty of an experienced teacher, the appreciation of a lover of literature....Virtually flawless.
The authoritative text is clearly written, thorough in coverage, and stylistically distinguished. This significant lexicon is a vital and relevant reference for all collections. - Library Journal (starred review)
