A RAZOR FOR A GOAT:  A DISCUSSION OF CERTAIN PROBLEMS IN THE HISTORY OF WITCHCRAFT AND DIABOLISM., Rose, Elliot.
2 Rose, Elliot. A RAZOR FOR A GOAT: A DISCUSSION OF CERTAIN PROBLEMS IN THE HISTORY OF WITCHCRAFT AND DIABOLISM.
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1989. 
257 pp, 8vo (9" H), soft cover. ISBN 0802067689 "With an amazing knowledge of his subject (and also of related matters, e.g. mythology and Jungian psychology) the author here discusses witchcraft and diabolism in a way that arouses admiration for his exact and critical aptitude. The central theme is the historical origins (and, as a sidetrack, the psychological functions) of some forms of witchcraft. The question whether these should be regarded as survivals of the ancient pagan cults, or whether they should be supposed to be linked to Christedom as heresy, is given extensive treatment." International Review of Social History. Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very minor edge wear, two tiny co rner creases - one migrates into last few pages. Very Good+
