The Witches from the Author: Stacy Schiff. 'An oppressive, forensic, psychological thriller: J.K. Rowling meets Antony Beevor, Stephen King and Marina Warner ... Schiff's writing is to die for' THE TIMES It began in 1692, over an exceptionally raw Massachusetts winter, when a minister's niece started to scream and convulse. It ended less than a year later, but not before panic had infected the entire colony, nineteen men and women had been hanged, and a band of adolescent girls had brought Massachusetts to its knees. Vividly capturing the dark, unsettled atmosphere of seventeenth-century America, Stacy Schiff's magisterial history draws us into this anxious time. She shows us how quickly the epidemic of accusations, trials, and executions span out of control. Above all, Schiff's astonishing research reveals details and complexity that few other historians have seen.

Caliban And The Witch from the Author: Silvia Federici. Literary Nonfiction. CALIBAN AND THE WITCH is a history of the body in the transition to capitalism. Moving from the peasant revolts of the late Middle Ages to the witch-hunts and the rise of mechanical philosophy, Federici investigates the capitalist rationalization of social reproduction. She shows how the battle against the rebel body and the conflict between body and mind are essential conditions for the development of labor power and self-ownership, two central principles of modern social organization."It is both a passionate work of memory recovered and a hammer of humanity's agenda." Peter Linebaugh, author of The London Hanged"

Witch from the Author: Fiona Horne. Witch is an informative, personal, inspirational - and funny! - guide to what witches do, how they do it, and why. Open your mind and body to a universal wellspring of magick, spirituality and the rituals of Wicca. Unleash this ancient force from within and the world around you - heal, hex and protect, and cast your own sacred circle and spells.Witch is set to shatter some commonly-held assumptions about witchcraft - and swell the ranks of witches' covens in the process! Witches have been misunderstood for centuries as advocates of the 'dark side', commonly (and wrongly) accociated with Satan and the Devil, but in reality, witches were natural healers and spiritual guides, and, like everyone else who didn't conform to the predominating religion, Christianity, they were considered evil and dangerous. These very misdirected assumptions all melt into thin air as Fiona details witch history (herstory), what the rituals mean, describing in full the meaning of annual festivals and the life of a witch, including moon worship, reincarnation and magickal music. Throughout are lots of very cool illustrations, from beautiful celtic borders and Japanese manga-style cartoons to personalised tarot cards and photo essays of actual rituals. From tips for effective witchcraft, interviews with High Priests and Priestesses and detailed how-to guides for all kinds of rituals with a whole reference library of contacts (from websites to books), Witch is a cyber-guide for the modern pagan. I am a child of the Universe No less than the seas and the stars Beautiful and Complete in myself Blessed, Essential and Perfect Note: This is not a book about satanism! Witchcraft is an alternative spirituality based on focusing personal energy and harnessing the power of nature through meditation and ritual.

Witch Week from the Author: Diana Wynne Jones. There are good witches and bad witches, but the law says that all witches must be burned at the stake. So when an anonymous note warns, "Someone in this class is a witch," the students in 6B are nervous—especially the boy who's just discovered that he can cast spells and the girl who was named after the most famous witch of all. Witch Week features the debonair enchanter Chrestomanci, who also appears in Charmed Life, The Magicians of Caprona, and The Lives of Christopber Chant. Someone in the class is a witch. At least so the anonymous note says. Everyone is only too eager to prove it is someone else—because in this society, witches are burned at the stake.
