Embracing the Witch and the Goddess is a detailed survey of present-day feminist witches in New Zealand. It examines the attraction of witchcraft for its practitioners, and explores witches' rituals, views and beliefs about how magic works. The book provides a detailed portrait of an undocumented section of the growing neo-pagan movement, and compares the special character of New Zealand witchcraft with its counterparts in the United States, Great Britain, and Australia. Kathryn Rountree traces the emergence and history of feminist witchcraft, and links witchcraft with the contemporary Goddess movement. She reviews scholarly approaches on the study of witchcraft and deals with the key debates which have engaged the movement's adherents and their critics, and ultimately presents what Mary Daly declared was missing from most historical and anthropological research on witchcraft: a 'Hag-identified vision'. Based on fieldwork amongst witch practitioners, Embracing the Witch and the Goddess is an important contribution to the emerging profile of present-day witchcraft and paganism.

Women Imagination and the Search for Truth in Early Modern France

Grounded in medical, juridical, and philosophical texts of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century France, this innovative study tells the story of how the idea of woman contributed to the emergence of modern science. Rebecca Wilkin focuses on the contradictory representations of women from roughly the middle of the sixteenth century to the middle of the seventeenth, and depicts this period as one filled with epistemological anxiety and experimentation. She shows how skeptics, including Montaigne, Marie de Gournay, and Agrippa von Nettesheim, subverted gender hierarchies and/or blurred gender difference as a means of questioning the human capacity to find truth; while "positivists" who strove to establish new standards of truth, for example Johann Weyer, Jean Bodin, and Guillaume du Vair, excluded women from the search for truth. The book constitutes a reevaluation of the legacy of Cartesianism for women, as Wilkin argues that Descartes' opening of the search for truth "even to women" was part of his appropriation of skeptical arguments. This book challenges scholars to revise deeply held notions regarding the place of women in the early modern search for truth, their role in the development of rational thought, and the way in which intellectuals of the period dealt with the emergence of an influential female public.

Nigerian playwright DIPO KALEJAIYE relates an educator and writer’s experience of living in Nigeria and the United States in his latest memoir, Some Memories of California. The book charts the author’s formative years as a lecturer in Nigeria and leaves readers with no doubt as to how the geographical, spiritual, political, and cultural aspects of his West African homeland prepared him for the amazing sojourn he undertakes upon his arrival in California, USA. Suffused with humor and grit, this is a purely personal tale that pushes to the forefront the African immigrant’s experience in the United States. Kalejaiye’s African background as a young lecturer, artist and family man is cleverly pitted against the American experience that seems to challenge and define his role as a fledgling but ambitious playwright who overcomes the odds to triumph in the end. Without equivocation, this book should serve as an informative read for lovers of memoirs exploring wit and adroitness to make peculiar humane concerns accessible to readers.
