About the Author:

Diane Purkiss is a Lecturer in English at the University of Reading.

Review:

"Ms. Purkiss..has interesting things to say about contemporary witchcraft and some striking if idiosyncratic comments about earlier (mainly fifteenth-and sixteenth century) material...Her [Purkiss's] analysis of the contemporary witchcraft movement, like her analysis of their myths, though generally critical, is occasionally and almost reluctantly admiring.."
-" The New York Review of Books, October 1997
"The author has an impressive ... grasp of literary, philosophical, psychological, and ethnological sources and their relevance to women."
-"Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences
