A New History of Witchcraft: Sorcerers, Heretics and Pagans

by Jeffrey B. Russell and Brooks Alexander - £12.95  Thames and Hudson (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780500286340 | ISBN 10: 0500286345

For nearly thirty years, during which it has been continuously in print, Jeffrey Russellís A History of Witchcraft has been the one authoritative concise illustrated history of witchcraft. Now, in collaboration with Brooks Alexander, who has conducted innovative researches in the field, this classic book has been fully revised with new chapters and illustrations.
 
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 its origins through to the present day.
 
The book now includes an analysis of the importance of the Internet and films in the dissemination of witchcraft and the potential tensions as a movement that was originally a closed, secretive, initiatory cult becomes an open, public religion.
