Bonewits writes of Witchcraft from its disputed origins, to the Inquisition, to
its re-invention in the 20th century. A scholarly, pungent, witty and sometimes
personal account. The book is a succinct guide to the many ways the term "witch"
has been used over the centuries, and includes a preface by Ashleen O'Gaea
(author of "The Family Wicca Book" ), a detailed recommended reading list, and an
analysis of the standard ritual design used by most Wiccan traditions. It is the
fruit of the author's over thirty years of Wiccan research and practice.
