From the Author
DEMONS! is an attempt to deal with concepts of evil.
The book is concerned with such questions as: does the Devil (and his demons) exist; what was the obsession with witchcraft; what is the power of possession; does exorcism really work? The book offers no dogmatic answers, but gives evidence and information by which readers can judge for themselves. A thought-provoking look at the role of the Devil and evil spirits through the ages to the present day is provided which itself encompasses the subjects of possession, witchcraft and exorcism. Case histories, old and new, as well as personal experiences are recounted. Illuminating the writing is discussion of the fundamental problem of the truly possessed who are seeking deliverance from a dominating power. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Also, he dismissed many aspects of demonlogy out of hand, by attributing belief in the bits he doesn't like to superstition and 'simple folk making up spirits to explain what they don't understand'. Yet at the same time he takes as a given the existence of The Devil (you must capitalise!!!)
I was expecting a history of demonology, but what you need to realise is that this is a history of Christian demonology. Therfore it is only a partial history, and very soon spends most of the book talking about witchcraft and preaching about it, in a very misinformed way. Babylonian demons get a page, Greek ones get half. I don't think any other cultures are represented at all.
I initially gave this book 2 stars, but as I write this review I realise how rubbish and useless this book actrually is. One star, and I'm feeling generous.
