    Highly recommended

    Scholarly and honest book. Some in the pagan community like to create their own myths. This pops them without a bias. This book is more on events and personalities in Britain. However, it contains little regarding the pagan movement in the USA. Highly recommended read.

    The first *real* history of Wicca

    I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It will give you all the details on how Wicca came to be created in the mid-twentieth century, based on literary, artistic, and academic fashions, the practices of fraternal orders and occult societies, old and new folk customs, and other cultural roots (real and imagined) going back to the 1700s. Hutton leaves no hope for those who wish to believe in a constantly existing Pagan religion in Britain or in a connection between the early modern witch trials and Paganism. No one can claim to be knowledgeable about the true history of modern Witchcraft who has not read and carefully studied this text. This meticulously documented book pounds the final nails into the coffin of the claims Gardner made (and others inflated) that Wicca was an ancient surviving British Pagan religion of Witchcraft. None but the most stubbornly fundamentalist of Orthodox Wiccans can deny it any longer, though I¿m sure they will continue to try, as a few of the negative reviews here demonstrate. Hutton's work supports and amplifies the research into Wiccan history that I and other modern writers have done over the last thirty years. Indeed, the chapter in my new eBook ('Witchcraft: A Concise History') on Gerald Gardner and the birth of Wicca owes a great deal to his clear exposition of complex details. Every Wiccan should have this book on their shelves.
