Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
This widely-acclaimed pioneering book gives us a fascinating and honest look at the religious experiences, beliefs, and lifestyles of the people who call themselves neopagans. Still the only detailed report on this little-known and largely misunderstood movement, it includes a completely updated resource guide of newsletters, journals, books, groups, and festivals.

Review:
Popular demand for this clear-sighted compendium of information about the rebirth of Pagan religions hasn't waned since its initial publication in 1979. Distinguished by the journalism of National Public Radio columnist Margot Adler, Drawing Down the Moon explains this diverse and burgeoning religion's philosophies and activities while dispelling stereotypes that have long been associated with it. Most people don't realize that pagan simply refers to pre-Christian polytheistic nature religions, such as the various Native American creeds, Japanese Shinto, Celtic Druid, and Western European Wicca. Originally, the word pagan meant "country dweller" and was a derogatory term in Rome in the third century A.D., not unlike calling someone a hick today. If you find yourself feeling queasy when you hear the words witch or pagan, a healthy dose of reeducation via Drawing Down the Moon could be the cure. --P. Randall Cohan
