Robert T. Latham grew up in a radically conservative religious tradition. As a result of enlightened educational experiences, his religious perspectives were transformed; due to military service during the Vietnam conflict, his cultural perspectives were also transformed. Out of these two transformations, along with his involvement in the 1960s civil rights movement, grew his insights into how mythology defines and shapes all human experience, whether personal, institutional, or cultural. A Tale of Boxes is the product of these insights.
He is presently working as a consultant and writer.
