This study looks at all forms of magic from cave-art to the present day, including an examination of the work of Aleister Crowley, Arthur Koestler, Eliphas Levi and C.G. Jung. The book attempts to illuminate the many and varied phenomena which are loosely defined as "magic" - from witch doctors to poltergeists, from pentagram rituals to spirit journeys on the astral plane, and from the development of homeopathy to the use of the I Ching. Reporting and interpreting rather than drawing conclusions, the author attempts to look at many ancient mysteries in a new way.
