Now fully revised-the classic study of Neo-Paganism

Almost thirty years since its original publication, Drawing Down the Moon continues to be the only detailed history of the burgeoning but still widely misunderstood Neo- Pagan subculture. Margot Adler attended ritual gatherings and interviewed a diverse, colorful gallery of people across the United States, people who find inspiration in ancient deities, nature, myth, even science fiction. In this new edition featuring an updated resource guide of newsletters, journals, books, groups, and festivals, Margot Adler takes a fascinating and honest look at the religious experiences, beliefs, and lifestyles of modern America's Pagan groups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent primer on Modern Pagan Practices One of the best and most comprehensive books currentlyl available about the development and organization of the Neo-Pagan movement, it was the best source available up until Triumph of the Moon, by Ronald Hutton. However, it is still a very relevant and useful book for any Pagan, and especially for Wiccans. It contains a great deal of information on the historic development of Wicca (as well as many other neo-Pagan paths) and where Hutton tends to cover Britain, Adler explores much more deeply into the North American aspects of Paganism, especially the inclusion of New Age and feminist philosophies during the 60's and 70's. The added strentgh of the book is the massive Tolkienesque Apendix, listing groups, stores and a plethora of other resources. While not as good in terms of the historic accuracy of Huttons (again Adler wrote in an eariler period, so many of the common afflictions of psuedo history/ myth as historic fact are incorporated), the sections on the pre-Gardner wicca should be read with a critical eye. Al in all, this is a must for any Pagan, especially Wiccans. It is one of those seminal books found in most Pagan libraries.

Given the lurid connotations Neo-Paganism has acquired... Drawing Down the Moon is a healthy corrective. (The New York Times Book Review)
