5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading
I'm astonished at the previous review. The author has managed to produce an extremely accurate account of the subject, supported by thorough research, and to present a huge amount of historical material in a way that's very readable and interesting. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a serious book on the subject without wading through volumes of academic research. I...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not so good
There are inaccuracies in this book, that contradict facts in most other books about Witchcraft.
So unless you are firmly on the side of the "witchcraft is evil brigade" this book is not for you. I read it as research, and truly wish I hadn't wasted my money on it.

I'm astonished at the previous review. The author has managed to produce an extremely accurate account of the subject, supported by thorough research, and to present a huge amount of historical material in a way that's very readable and interesting. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a serious book on the subject without wading through volumes of academic research. I assume that the reviewer didn't read any of this in the course of her research.

The book doesn't say anywhere that witchcraft is evil. Its purpose is not to pass judgement on the subject matter, but to educate and inform, and it succeeds brilliantly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb and concise treatment of the witch craze, 11 Oct. 2004
By A Customer
Lois Martin's book on the witch craze is nothing less than a minor classic. While many of the books in this series are nothing more than filler, Martin's book is a relief in that it is written by someone who is not only passionate about their subect matter (indeed, I suspect Martin of being a practicising witch herself), but who also knows history from new age twaddle. A great and informative book.
