Synopsis: Presenting a host of real-life historical anecdotes, this richly illustrated study examines the rituals, myths, and superstitions behind the use of magic throughout history, discussing such topics as the natural magic of herbal remedies, lucky numbers, magical rituals and practices, and more.

From School Library Journal: Adult/High School-This attractive, fact-filled volume offers a bracing and clear-headed approach to an often-confusing subject. A scholar of religious history, the author shows that science, religion, and magic "have always enjoyed a more complex relationship behind the scenes than their manifestos would suggest." Alexander's own perspective is unequivocally that of the scientist: there are few paranormal thrills here, but neither will readers find justification for religious dogma, and the treatment of myth isn't really aimed at the Joseph Campbell crowd, either. Yet teens can be entertained, challenged, and enlightened as the author demystifies many traditionally occult subjects, and they might be inspired to think more critically about contemporary beliefs. The book's brevity could disappoint, and certain conclusions irritate, some knowledgeable readers, but Alexander's broad cultural perspective and tolerant insight into human psychology inspire confidence and command respect. The subject covered in the most depth is witch-hunting, and these chapters serve as a powerful warning (both to potential finger-pointers and accused) of the appalling human cost of such campaigns. Abundant illustrations, from ancient times to Harry Potter, reflect a wide range of topics and relate cleverly to the text. With its solid content, stylish graphics, and eye-catching sidebars, Spellbound can be browsed casually or read cover to cover. Whatever attitudes they bring to the book, teens will find much good information and a trustworthy foundation for further study.
