Editorial Reviews Product Description This work explores the origins of Santa Claus, going back to prehistoric times and man's earliest concepts of religion. It analyzes how ancient myths from countries as diverse as Britain, Russia, Scandinavia, Spain and Africa were adapted, sanitized and commercialized in modern times by America.

He was born in Amsterdam and served in the Resistance during World War II, was condemned to death by the Nazis and escaped.
