According to sociologist C. Wright Mills, we do not live in a world of solid fact but in a world permeated by culture, constructed by humans through communication with each other. Myth-making shapes our lives, beliefs and behavior. Collective myths become plausible explanations for events past and future as each new generation constructs reality anew to make sense of the human condition.

Providing a sociological and multicultural analysis, this book examines myth-making in the today's world amid religious extremism and terrorism. The author discusses the imperative of myth in comprehending illness, death, sexuality, and human relationships to the environment and other animals.
