Summary:
Economists acknowledge that a major limitation to economic theory is its failure to incorporate human values and beliefs as motivational factors. Conversely, the economic underpinnings of ritual practice are under-theorized and therefore not accesible to economists working on synthetic theories of human choice. This book addresses the problem.
