From Library Journal:

Jordan (Encyclopedia of Gods, LJ 7/93) gives brief definitions of the terms, events, people, and holidays of the pagan movement, a faith based on the concept that the earth is sacred and the feminine is present in worship. He offers interviews with Vivienne Crowley, Olivia Durdin-Robertson, Maxine Sanders, and Doreen Valiente, who are extremely important to the pagan and witchcraft movements in Great Britain. The entries are concise, well written, informative, and balanced. While some cover the American pagan movement, the focus is on witchcraft and paganism in Great Britain. Even so, this is an important volume for American audiences because the British movements have deeply influenced much of American witchcraft. The photographs are spectacular. Highly recommended for collections that serve patrons practicing or studying alternative religions and appropriate for academic and general collections in public libraries.?Gail Wood, SUNY Coll. at Cortland, N.Y.
