Summary

Oriental Magic is recognized as a brilliant study of how, what and why people think, in territories extending from North Africa to Japan. The book is the product of years of research and fieldwork in a dozen different cultural regions. Its scholarly accuracy and genuine contribution to cultural understanding have made it a key text for anyone interested in informal beliefs and esoteric practices. The work includes material on Indian alchemy, the Arabian Abjad system, and divination and talismanic charms, and it even contains an ancient Brahmin spell for immortality.
