'Like its predecessors, this latest edition of the Celtic Studies Association of North America Yearbook is masterfully edited and introduced by CSANA’s own legendary giant – UCLA’s Joseph Falaky Nagy, whose erudite and witty prose never fails to dazzle the fields of Celtic Studies and Folkloristics on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean … the nine articles presented together in this volume offer a timely re-assessment of Celtic myths and the role of mythology in Celtic Studies … In these Yearbook articles, the authors present eclectic readings of old texts and fresh insights into ongoing dialogues as they tackle myth in relation to issues such as national identity, onomastics, sprirituality, and the super natural … The nine articles of volume six are worthy contributions to Celtic Studies, confirming a continuing high standard of scholarship … I wholeheartedly applaud Nagy and his colleagues for redefining naïve notions of Celtic myth and for this bold attempt to re-consecrate and re-centralise Celtic mythology', Maria Teresa Agozzino, Folklore (December 2009).
