The swastika is an ancient religious symbol that existed for millennia before it was appropriated by the Nazis. In this study the design historian Steven Heller traces the swastika's origins in antiquity, its role in religion, folklore and mythology through the centuries, and the meanings attributed to it before it was transformed into an icon of evil. Accompanied by scores of illustrations, his analysis also addresses the question of whether the swastika is now irretrievably tainted.
