For nearly thirty years, Jeffrey B. Russell's authoritative book has been the one illustrated history to which anyone interested in this subject could turn with confidence. Now, in collaboration with Brooks Alexander, who has himself conducted innovative research in the field, this classic book has been fully revised, with an updated introduction and bibliography, new information throughout, and an extended account of witchcraft from ancient times to the present day. Drawing comparisons between modern sorcery and that of the ancient world, the book shows how the European witch craze in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries developed out of a combination of ancient sorcery and medieval Christian heresy, paganism, folklore, scholastic theology, and inquisitorial trials.

What matters more is that it was believed to exist by intellectuals and peasants alike.… (mere)

Well, I haven't read this one cover to cover, but I've read enough to know that I would not trust anything it says without further verification. For example, he talks on pages 45 and 46 about a Norse divinitory practice called seith which, he claims is attested in the Edda, Seith is not mentioned in either Edda. It's sole mention in the sagas comes from the Saga or Erik the Red, It's significantly different than described in the book.
The passage quoted in the book is not from the Edda at all, but from Grimm's Teutonic Mythology, Vol 3, page 1043
There are several other errors - notably in the confusion betwixt witchcraft and sorcery and the confusion between diabolical arts and either.
Poorly written and attested - an illustration of Diana indicates she led the Wild Hunt, which was a bit far north for her to go, and there is no evidence of this either.
Errors of fact, errors in logic, mis-attribution of sources..I expected better from a full professor in the UC system.
One star for nice pictures and decent printing. Save your money. ( )
