'Diane Purkiss … insists on taking witches seriously. Her refusal to write witch-believers off as unenlightened has produced some richly intelligent meditations on their -- and our -- world.' - The Observer

'An invigorating and challenging book … sets many hares running.' - The Times Higher Education Supplement
