Satanic Panic: The Creation of a Contemporary Legend

Satanic Panic: The Creation of a Contemporary Legend Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Sociologist Victor began his involvement with satanic-cult phenomena by investigating a local panic centered in southwestern New York state. After an introductory section, his book begins with a description of this research, then proceeds with an excellent general review of recent fear about satanic cults in the U.S. He concludes that there is no evidence for the actual existence of organized satanic cults." — Choice

Book News Annotation:

A rational view of evidence for the existence of witches and other boogies. (The mindless folk do need some excitement with all the commies swept from under our beds--and their rousers need the cash offerings.) Published by Open Court Publishing Co., 332 South Michigan Avenue, Suite 2000, Chicago, IL 60604-9968.
