"This is a scholarly and provocative study of Satanism yesterday and today."--Nove Religio "Medway's book is a breath of fresh air in this field of murk, delusion and deception." -- Fortean Times "The first truly authoritative book on the subject" --New York Press, Nov. 14-20, 2001 "This is an excellent study of an emotional and difficult subject and it is required reading for the open-minded. Highly recommended." -- The Cauldron
