Overview
"It separates centuries of supernatural nonsense from documented fact ... spellbinding." --Los Angeles Times For nearly thirty years, this book has been the authoritative illustrated history of witchcraft. Now, in collaboration with Brooks Alexander, who has himself conducted innovative research in the field, Jeffrey Russell's study has been fully revised with additional chapters accompanied by new illustrations. As history shows, whether or not one believes in the powers of witchcraft, one must believe in the existence of witches. Here the definition of witchcraft in its many diverse forms is discussed and its historical, anthropological and religious manifestations charted from ancient times to the present. Alexander includes an analysis of the importance of the Internet and films in the dissemination of modern witchcraft and the potential tensions as a secretive, initiatory cult becomes an open and recognized religion.
