Oriental Magic

Review From User :

First published over 60 years ago, Idries Shah's Oriental Magic remains a classic. For five years Shah examined rare artifacts and obscure manuscripts, travelling to remote areas in a dozen regions where magic persists. Neither credulous or skeptical, he takes the hocus-pocus out of magical texts, beliefs & practices. Yet he deepens its mystery, maybe even its use, with some intriguing and fruitful questions. Could the startling similarity in magical belief, practice and terminology around the world hint at a single origin Could it's universality and persistence together with confirmed eye-witness reports point to under-recognized, extraordinary mental and physical processes worth investigating objectively Loaded with illustrations this brand new edition is sure to intrigue a new generation of readers.
