Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0752428403, Paperback)
From Simon Magus to Merlin, Faust to Cornelius Agrippa, the Comte de Saint Germain to Aleister Crowley, the magician has been both fêted and feared. An awesome figure in real life and in literature, he has retained his hold on the Western imagination in the teeth of scientific advance. P.G. MaxwellStuart’s history of the wizard from ancient times to the present shows just how extraordinary a character the wizard has proved to benot merely a conjuring trickster or malicious egotist in league with Satan (though there have been plenty of both), but also a deeply religious person intent on using magic the better to understand the mind of God.
