This study presents the force of Shinto and the human mood, feelings and value-nuances which perpetuate it. . . . The author describes a Shinto shrine: examines the basic myth of creation and the Shinto conception of deity which has grown out of it. Festivals and rites are detailed, as well as the ultimate merging of religion and politics during the Meiji period and the state of Shinto today.
