Editorial Reviews

The introduction to this audiobook begins with: "Magic was an accusation long before it was a practice". What follows is Robert Ralley's examination of the history of sorcery, witchcraft, and deception. Ralley acknowledges the controversies in the field, explaining that there is no definition of "magic" that won't meet some resistance. The audiobook addresses these debates and, in doing so, engages the listener in the age-old conversation about what constitutes magic. Deidre Rubenstein's voice is steady and trustworthy. The listener is captivated by the mysteries and legends presented herein.

Publisher's Summary

The mysterious art of magic has been a source of wonderment since before the time of Christ. Ranging from the supernatural practices of "black" magic to demonstrations of dazzling illusion, magic has been called on to conjure the evil eye, burn villages to the ground, and slice women in half. From the astrology of the three wise men to David Blaine's "stunts", Robert Ralley delves into this magical underworld and illuminates the dangerous balance between illusion, fraud, and wickedness that still exists today.
