Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Thoroughly recommended to any new comer to the topic of witchcraft , necromancy and magic.The author presents the subject across different cultures and a wide timespan in an approachable but systematic and comprehensive manner.There is very little left out in her account as she regularly enlivens the text by mentioning the diverse opinions of experts, historians and anthropologists ,to provide an up to date sum up of academic research in a notoriously difficult subject.
The book is beautifully illustrated and adds to the pleasure of reading what many would consider a dry subject.She has certainly succeeded in providing an excellent introduction without belittling or oversimplifying her subject.

Arrived promptly and in excellent condition. Even though it was a bank holiday the book arrived within a few days. Great service from the seller and the book is just what I was looking for.
An in depth explanation of witchcraft in all cultures, includes loads of lovely photos and includes modern day culture as well as historical contexts.
