Publisher's Comments

Modern Wicca is the only book on the market that gives you insider knowledge of Gerald Gardner's life and a rare look at the guarded secrets of Wicca while exploring the modern revival of the Craft. From the Museum of Magic and Witchcraft at the Isle of Man to the origins of the Book of Shadows, Modern Wicca tracks the evolution of Wicca as it spread from the United Kingdom to the United States and beyond. Also examined are Wicca's links to older forms of traditional Witchcraft, such as the Pickingill Craft. Along with a thorough history of modern neo-pagan Witchcraft, this book brings to life the various personalities who practiced and promoted it during the last sixty years, including Aleister Crowley, Alex Sanders, and Doreen Valiente. Also, practitioners will learn about the fastest growing system of spirituality today. "This is an extremely important book, representing an account of Wiccan history from somebody who has himself been a major actor in it." —Ronald Hutton, author of Triumph of the Moon
