Notes:

An intelligent but selective study of magical movements from the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn to Techno-Paganism. What's here is excellent, but the omissions are problematic - no Children of Artemis, no Regency, no Traditional Craft revival etc..

Mentions Cecil Williamson and the Museum, though only briefly (p.183).
