BRIGGS, ROBIN
Witches and Neighbours: The Social and Cultural Context of European Witchcraft
London, HarperCollins. 1996, First Edition. (ISBN: 0-00-215844-2) Hardcover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Witchcraft has always intrigued the imagination, sparking visions of Macbeth's hags, complete with heathland and bubbling cauldrons. But throughout European history, particularly from the 14th- to the 17th-century, ordinary people were tried and put to death for witchcraft, often in a brutal and grotesque manner. So who were the witches? What were their practises? Who believed in them? What was their place in society? Why were they so feared? How were they accused, tried and executed? Robin Briggs attempts to answer these questions, broadening his scope as he looks beyond the persecutions themselves, to concentrate upon the society they illuminate. Between 1560 and 1660, more people were tried for witchcraft than at any other time in history. The detailed records of many of the trials have allowed the author to build up a description of life among the European peasantry some 400 years ago: the minutiae of social life, daily activities, neighbourhood and kinship ties, the pervasive force of superstition and family relationships. Very Good/Very Good.

BURKS, EDDIE AND CRIBBS, GILLIAN
Ghosthunter: Investigating the World of Ghosts and Spirits
London, Headline. 1996. (ISBN: 0-7472-4717-X) Paperback. The British Isles must have more ghosts and haunts per square mile than any other place of comparable size in the world. But psychic Eddie Burks has made it his life's work to move those trapped spirits on to a better place. Not an exorcist or a ghostbuster, Burks is a "sensitive" with the apparent ability to communicate with the dead. In 1993 he made international news when Coutts, the Queen's bank, asked him to investigate a spectre haunting its prestigious office in the Strand. (Burks identified the ghost as Thomas Howard, fourth duke of Norfolk, who was beheaded by Queen Elizabeth in 1572.) Soon afterwards he teamed up with freelance writer Gillian Cribbs to visit haunted places throughout England and act as psychic therapist to the troubled spirits. From palaces and manor houses to pubs and council flats, Burks contacted the ghosts while Cribbs interviewed the witnesses and checked historical details. The story of their adventures is both entertaining and thought provoking, with little trace of sensationalism. Very Good.

COOPER, J.C.
Aquarian Dictionary of Festivals, The
Wellingborough, Aquarian. 1990, First Edition. (ISBN: 0-85030-848-8) Paperback, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. In this dictionary there is a detailed listing of all festivals celebrated by mankind from tribal communities to urban societies. It reflects the origins and persistence of ancient beliefs and customs providing information on the ways and life of the people, past and present. It reveals how festivals were religious before they became civic, they involved the whole community, since in early times there was no dichotomy between the sacred and the secular and they served a dual purpose in uniting both. Very Good.
