free download Halloween From Pagan Ritual to Party Night summary Halloween From Pagan Ritual to Party Night ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Nicholas Rogers ☆ 8 summary A night of inversion when social norms are turned upside down and a temporary freedom of expression reigns supreme He examines how this very license has prompted censure by the religious Right occasional outrage from law enforcement officials and appropriation by Left leaning political groups Engagingly written and based on extensive research Halloween is the definitive history of the most bewitching day of the year illuminating the intricate history and shifting cultural forces behind this enduring trick or treat holid. This book was interesting and informative but I hate reading books that are supposed to be factual scholarly type works that contain obvious biases If I m looking for facts I don t want to hear the author s opinion on various religions or political beliefs In this case the author freuently referred to the Evangelical Right or the Religious Right as ridiculous or ignorant without backing up the claims I was looking for history and less editorializing The information that the book contained however was interesting and I learned a lot about the history of Halloween

I enjoyed this book but I really wanted about the mythology of Halloween The book advertises that it traces the traditions of Halloween from ancient Druids until today but I found that the book focused mostly on modern events The book does a great job of discussing the influence of Halloween on the horror genre and culture in general Over all it was informative and interesting but not exactly as it is advertised
