A History of Witchcraft: Sorcerers, Heretics & Pagans, Second Edition


Jeffrey B. Russell’s authoritative illustrated history of witchcraft, first published in 1980, was, in collaboration with Brooks Alexander, fully revised with additional chapters and new illustrations in 2007. 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. Highly recommended. (paperback, 2007)

“It separates centuries of supernatural nonsense from documented fact . . . spellbinding.” –Los Angeles Times
