blurb;
An Examination of Ancient and Modern Witchcraft
Witchcraft has in recent years come back to the public consciousness with reports of graveyard desecrations, black magic rites and vandalism.
Julian Franklyn discusses such incidents as manifestations of the black art.
Touching on the infamous Salem witch trials, sorcery in Melanesia and the notorious Aleister Crowley, he reviews the whole subject in the light of modern theories of psychology, hypnotism and suggestibility.

Death by Enchantment is Volume 30 in the Dennis Wheatley Library of the Occult
