Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'There is no question that Douglas Cowan's contribution to the study of modern paganism on the Internet is significant and valuable. He achieved his goal in removing the hype surrounding this form of religious activity, supplying readers with a clear overview of the phenomenon, new theoretical frameworks and heuristic devices for interpreting the activities, and insight into how the World Wide Web is changing the religious landscape of our wired world.' - Christopher Helland, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada

'A much needed book.' - Irving Hexham, University of Calgary, Canada

'This book should become one of the classic texts in the still relatively new area of study.' - J. Gordon Melton, University of California, USA
