Social constructs have given rise to different types of witches, and as such, treat witchcraft as a metaphor. These are the particular focus of this book, which combines historical accounts, fictional literature, experiences, theoretical propositions and artistic reflections to form a multidisciplinary examination of gender, myth and alterity. From a sociological perspective, witches are deviants able to survive outside the standard norm, drawing power from unknown, or ‘supernatural’, sources. Contributors include Olivier Marboeuf, Marina Warner, Angus Cameron, among others, plus interviews with Silvia Federici, Redfern Barrett, A.A. Bronson and Latifa Laâbissi.
