"Arthur Versluis has written a wonderfully concise overview and analysis of Western esotericism. The scholarship is wide-ranging and up to date, yet the tone is quite readable and not overly academic." -- Jay Kinney, former editor and publisher of Gnosis magazine

Topics covered include alchemy, Gnosticism, Hermeticism, Rosicrucianism, Theosophy and many more.

Arthur Versluis is the founder and president of the Association for the Study of Esotericism and editor of the journal Esoterica. He is the author of many books and is a professor of writing, rhetoric, and American cultures at Michigan State University.
