The Golden Bough

by James George Frazer

This famous book marked a turning point in the consideration of religion. While it is certainly dry and 'scholarly' (as another reviewer has mentioned), that was part of the point. It presents the history and evolution of religion from an objective viewpoint outside of it. It contains a wealth of knowledge, and its perspective was a near revolution for its time.
