Reviews

"Chireau (Swarthmore) has produced an excellent study of the African American conjuring tradition. . . . Chireau shows the important link between the conjure tradition and the healing practices of sanctified churches. . . . Highly recommended."--CHOICE
"A compelling, well-written examination of conjure, highly recommended."--Nova Religio
"Black Magic persuasively supports the position that interpretive categories like "religion" are social constructed."--Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion
